New York Mets general manger Brodie Van Wagenen right speaks to reporters during

Major League Baseball analyst Jessica Mendoza is set to join the Mets front office in a player-evaluation role, it was reported on Tuesday. She still plans to be part of the national "Sunday Night Baseball" team. She has been with the network since 2007. We are confident that she will help us in our efforts to win now and in the future.

The latest is ESPN's Jessica Mendoza being hired by the New York Mets as an advisor to new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

Mendoza's role with the Mets will include player evaluation, roster construction, technological advancement, and health and performance.

"I think at least some people in the media will watch more closely for traces of conflict of interest and she can dispel that", he said.

David Ortiz and Frank Thomas are Fox studio analysts; Ortiz is a special assistant for the Boston Red Sox and Thomas a special consultant for business operations for the Chicago White Sox.

Mendoza, 38, joins Haley Alvarez, who is the Athletics' scouting coordinator, and Kim Ng, the senior vice president of baseball operations for MLB, as women working prominently at the highest levels of baseball. She has also served as a sideline reporter for college football and has contributed content to espnW.

Misty Carrico, the children's mother - who said she feared the worst before her girls were found - added, "I'm the proudest mom". More than 100 police and rescue personnel were searching for them, including the National Guard and the U.S.

"Jessica has a tremendous knowledge of the game", said Mets COO Jeff Wilpon.

It's unclear how this role would affect her current situation with ESPN.

"I am excited to work with Brodie and his team and am thrilled to be associated with the Mets and their storied history", said Mendoza. I would also like to thank ESPN and Disney for their understanding and confidence as I balance both tasks moving forward.

The Mets, meanwhile, are happy to hire a two-time Olympian in softball. She then won a gold medal with the USA women's softball team in Athens in 2004 and a silver medal in Beijing in 2008.

She also played softball professionally in 2005 and then again from 2010-2012.
