Alderson led the A's when they won three straight AL pennants from 1988-90 and a sweep of the earthquake-interrupted 1989 World Series against the San Francisco Giants. He was general manager between stints as team president from 1993-95 and 1997-98.
NEW YORK (AP) — Former Kansas City general manager Allard Baird is joining the New York Mets as vice president and assistant general manager of scouting and player development.

NEW YORK (AP) — When the New York Mets went looking for a general manager, they found one in a peculiar place.
On the other side of the bargaining table.
Longtime baseball agent Brodie Van Wagenen is switching roles to become GM of the Mets, the team announced Monday evening. Contract details were not disclosed.
If hired as general manager of the New York Mets, Doug Melvin likely would keep Mickey Callaway as manager.
The former Texas and Milwaukee GM has his second interview Tuesday with the Mets, meeting with owner Fred Wilpon and his son, chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon. Agent Brodie Van Wagenen and Tampa Bay senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom are also finalists for the job.
NEW YORK (AP) — Agent Brodie Van Wagenen interviewed Monday to switch sides and become general manager of the New York Mets and is among three finalists along with former Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin and Tampa Bay senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom.
The 44-year-old Van Wagenen has been co-head of CAA Baseball since 2010 and is familiar to the Mets as the representative for Yoenis Cespedes and others.
NEW YORK (AP) — On the final day of an emotionally draining season, Mickey Callaway knew exactly how to describe what he just went through with the New York Mets.
"It's been a roller-coaster ride," the rookie manager said. "There definitely were highs and lows."
New York said goodbye to captain David Wright, general manager Sandy Alderson and former ace Matt Harvey.
Jacob deGrom delivered a Cy Young-caliber performance that went to waste.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets assistant general manager John Ricco says he fully anticipates rookie skipper Mickey Callaway coming back next year despite New York's disappointing season.
NEW YORK (AP) — Late last month, when the New York Mets were on the road, a display case at Citi Field went up in flames.
Just like their 2018 season.
Nobody got hurt in the fire, which was extinguished by an automatic sprinkler system, and damage was minimal, according to the team.
If only it were that simple to fix the product on the field.
A look at what's happening around the majors today:
NEW YORK (AP) — His voice quavering at an unexpected news conference, Sandy Alderson revealed what he had just told his team moments before.
His cancer has returned, he's taking a leave of absence — and his up-and-down tenure as New York Mets general manager is essentially over.
NEW YORK (AP) — Desperate to win after an emotional day at Citi Field, the New York Mets sent just the right man to the plate in the 10th inning.
Wilmer Flores singled home the decisive run and the Mets stopped their seven-game losing streak Tuesday night, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 hours after general manager Sandy Alderson stepped down because his cancer has returned.
A look at what's happening around the majors Wednesday:
NEW YORK (AP) — The struggling New York Mets made a couple of roster changes Friday, cutting Hansel Robles and demoting fellow reliever Paul Sewald to the minor leagues.
Right-hander Drew Smith and outfielder Kevin Kaczmarski were called up from Triple-A Las Vegas before the opener of a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
NEW YORK (AP) — Sandy Alderson all but said "tick, tick, tick."
Mets players are running out of time to turn around their season, and New York's general manager took the blame as the person in charge of assembling the roster.

A look at what's happening around the majors Wednesday:
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets slugger Yoenis Cespedes was out of the lineup Tuesday night because of a strained right hip flexor and could be headed to the disabled list.
A precautionary MRI showed a mild strain, the team said. Brandon Nimmo was set to play left field in Cespedes' place against the Toronto Blue Jays in a game delayed by rain at the start.
Cespedes was available to pinch-hit, but New York manager Mickey Callaway said he would only use him in "an obvious chance to win the game."
NEW YORK (AP) — Matt Harvey was formally designated for assignment Saturday by the New York Mets, who replaced him on the pitching staff by recalling reliever Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas.
The move was made before the Mets hosted the Colorado Rockies, just as general manager Sandy Alderson said. Alderson announced Friday the team had decided to cut Harvey from its roster after the struggling former ace refused a minor league assignment.
NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Mets said nighty-night to the Dark Knight.
Matt Harvey, once regarded as a premier pitcher who could have joined Tom Seaver and Dwight Gooden among the Mets' greats, refused a minor league assignment and will be designated for assignment Saturday.
The 29-year-old right-hander lost his spot in the rotation last month after four starts, and he had a 10.50 ERA in four relief appearances.
NEW YORK (AP) — Mets catchers can't avoid catching a break. Or a tear.
Catcher Kevin Plawecki will be sidelined for three-to-four weeks with a broken left hand and went on the disabled list Friday as New York announced Travis d'Arnaud will have season-ending Tommy John surgery.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Tim Tebow arrived at the New York Mets spring training camp on Sunday, and the attention immediately turned to whether the quarterback who became an outfielder could make it all the way to Citi Field in the future.
Guess what? Mets general manager Sandy Alderson votes yes.
"Somebody asked me if thought he'd be a major league player at some point. I think he will play in the major leagues. That's my guess," Alderson said.
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — The way the New York Mets look at it, they have two catchers good enough to start in the majors.
Some might say they have none.
While the Mets focused on filling other holes this offseason, one thorny area where they didn't make a big move to mask their warts was behind the plate. They're still counting on once-touted prospects Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki — or at least one of them — to solidify the position.
NEW YORK (AP) — By the end of last season, the New York Mets' vaunted pitching staff was broken. So they brought in rookie manager Mickey Callaway as Mister Fix-it.
The former Cleveland Indians guru begins his first managerial job at any level next week when New York opens spring training in Port St. Lucie, Florida. The primary task for Callaway and first-year Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland: rebuild the same rotation with their own set of tools.
NEW YORK (AP) — Todd Frazier stood a few feet away, wearing the No. 21 Mets jersey of Cleon Jones, Carlos Delgado and Lucas Duda. New York general manager Sandy Alderson smiled.
In a depressed free-agent market, Alderson added the third baseman to New York's offseason haul with a $17 million, two-year contract. For a commitment of just $72 million, the Mets brought in Frazier, outfielder Jay Bruce and reliever Anthony Swarzak while retaining shortstop Jose Reyes.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Free-agent reliever Anthony Swarzak is reuniting with Mickey Callaway, the new manager of the New York Mets.
The 32-year-old right-hander and the Mets have agreed to a $14 million, two-year contract, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday at the winter meetings because the agreement has not been announced and is subject to successful physical.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Baltimore Orioles star Manny Machado could be on the move.
To a new position — or a new team.
Big names emerged in trade talk Tuesday, with Machado, New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and Detroit pitcher Michael Fulmer heating up the winter meetings.
And no surprise, the busy New York Yankees are looming, looking to boost a ballclub getting more formidable by the day.
For the moment, no deals for that trio of All-Stars.
