FLUSHING, N.Y., October 5, 2023 – The New York Mets announced today Billy Eppler has resigned as General Manager.
“Billy Eppler led this team through a 101-win season and postseason berth last year and he will be missed,” Mets Owner, Chairman and CEO Steve Cohen said. “We accepted Billy’s resignation today as he decided it is in everyone’s best interest to fully hand over the leadership of Baseball Operations to David Stearns. On behalf of the Mets organization, we wish him all the best.”
“I wanted David to have a clean slate and that meant me stepping down,” Eppler said. “I hope for nothing but the best for the entire Mets organization.”
