The New York Daily News is reporting that the New York Mets are expecting manager Terry Collins to retire after this year. The 68-year-old Collins has been with New York since 2011, racking up 578 wins (and counting) along with a National League pennant and back-to-back trips to the playoffs.

Mets rookie infielder Phillip Evans has at least one hit in six of 11 games since being added to the roster on Sept. 8. In 21 brief at bats, he is batting .333, while playing second and third base. Evans, 24, had been hitting .279 with 26 doubles, three triples, 11 home runs and 56 RBI in 127 games during what was his first season in Triple-A.
