Randy St. Claire most recently served as pitching coach of the Miami Marlins.

Randy St. Claire is expected to join the Mets' organization as Triple-A Las Vegas pitching coach, working alongside Wally Backman, a baseball source told ESPNNewYork.com.

St. Claire, 52, appeared in the majors during parts of nine seasons as a reliever, primarily with the Montreal Expos.

He has served as a pitching coach in the division with the Nationals and Marlins -- the latter until he was fired along with manager Ozzie Guillen after this past season.
