These announcements come as Van Wagenen's first big moves as General Manager of the New York Mets.
The Mets went 77-85 in 2018, finishing in fourth in the National League East.
Amaro has experience as a general manager in the Major League Baseball as he served the Philadelphia Phillies under that title in the early 2000's. Van Wagenen worked as an agent for CAA, and some of their clientele includes Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Yoenis Cespedes, Brandon Nimmo, and many more. "You've got to identify who complements yourself".
Van Wagenen indicated he will continue to lean on assistant GM John Ricco and special assistant J.P. Ricciardi, but stopped short of saying both have made a decision to remain with the organization. "We're going to be open-minded to all scenarios". He began the season at High-A St. Lucie and overall hit.273 with six homers and played in the Eastern League All-Star game.
Van Wagenen attended the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game last weekend, met with player development staff and scouts, and also had dinner with Mets prospect Peter Alonso, who homered in the game on a 103 miles per hour pitch from Toronto's Nate Pearson.
"At this point we want to identify where our greatest needs are and make sure we are putting our best people in that position", Van Wagenen said.

Lukaku's injury means he is a doubt for Sunday's trip to Manchester City, so Sanchez might get another outing at the Etihad. He added: "I think it's always good to be the outsider, so people expect bad of us and then we surprise people".
