Report: Indians GM Mike Chernoff Will Not Pursue Mets GM Opening

October 14, 2018 - 5:20 pm


Indians general manager Mike Chernoff will not pursue the Mets' opening for a head of baseball operations, replacing Sandy Alderson, according to the New York Post.

The Indians' GM has informed team officials of his intent to remain in Cleveland, the report said. The 37-year-old is the son of the head of WFAN's programming, Mark Chernoff. Mike Chernoff joins former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington and Twins GM Thad Levine among potential candidates who have told the Mets they are not interested. 

The Mets began first-round interviews last week for the position. With Chernoff now seemingly off the table, the search continues.
