HoJo out, Jauss to minors

Popular '86 Met Howard Johnson has opted to leave the organization. The Mets had promised him a job in the organization after not being retained as hitting coach, but that dragged on and HoJo decided not to remain.

Dave Jauss, the other major league coach from Jerry Manuel's staff promised a job but not retained with the big league club, will work as a roving minor league coach.
