Mets manager Terry Collins is expected to return in 2015, says Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Collins's contract runs through next season, and it doesn't come as much of a surprise that the organization is not planning on making a change before next season begins.

Hired by the Mets shortly after Sandy Alderson took over as general manager after the 2010 season, Collins has overseen a Mets team that has gone 282-324 since the beginning of the 2011 season, though it would hardly be fair to blame only Collins for the lack of success the team has had over that span.

This year, the Mets are on pace to win roughly 77 games, which is as many as they won in 2011. They won 74 games in both 2012 and 2013. While a serious run at a Wild Card spot this season seems incredibly unlikely, expectations are already high for next year, as Matt Harvey is scheduled to return from Tommy John surgery to give the team a significant boost.
