Tom Signore will Fill in For Frank Viola in AAA

While Frank Viola is recovering from open heart surgery, the Mets will ask Tom Signore, who had been scheduled to serve as the pitching coach for SSA Brooklyn to fill in (Per Kevin Burkhart on Thursday’s SNY broadcast).

This is a return to Vegas for Signore, who was the Jays’ AAA pitching coach in 2011.

Signore, who had been with the Toronto Blue Jays sine 2005, had worked as their double-A pitching coach for the last three years.

 

Signore, 52, also joins the Mets organization for the first time in 2014 after spending the previous two seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays as the pitching coach with New Hampshire (AA) of the Eastern League.

 

Also, this cannot be said enough: get well soon, Frank.
