Chris Young pulls out of running for Mets GM opening

The Mets’ search to bolster their front office has hit another dead end, when Chris Young pulled his name from consideration to be the team’s general manager, The Post has learned.

Young, MLB’s senior VP of on field operations, withdrew because of family considerations. He lives in Dallas and has children ages 8, 10 and 12 and felt this was not the right time to uproot despite being intrigued by the position with the Mets.

Young was a major league pitcher for 13 seasons and Sandy Alderson was one of his bosses with both the Padres and Mets.

Alderson, the Mets’ team president, announced last week that the Mets were no longer looking for a president of baseball operations because they had been shut down from talking to so many of their desired candidates.

The concentration now is on finding a general manager.
