Buck Showalter revealed he will not return as manager of the New York Mets next season.

Showalter's Mets were one of Major League Baseball's biggest disappointments this season, entering Sunday's games with a 74-86 record despite boasting the highest payroll in the MLB.

New York is expected to hire David Stearns as president of baseball operations above general manager Billy Eppler, and Showalter's departure clears the way for Stearns to make his manager pick.
