NEW YORK (AP) — The Mets have replaced third base coach Tim Teufel and will reassign him to a different position in the organization.

New York announced the move Tuesday. Teufel, a member of the Mets' 1986 World Series championship team, had been the third base coach since 2012 and also was New York's catching instructor.

The Mets are replacing Teufel with Glenn Sherlock, who just ended a 21-season stint with Arizona. Sherlock had been with the Diamondbacks organization since its start, working in the minor leagues in 1996 and '97 before joining the major league coaching staff for Arizona's inaugural 1998 season. He was third base coach in 2004 and 2014, and also served as a bench coach, bullpen coach and catching coach.
