The New York Mets are nearing a two-year contract extension with manager Terry Collins that includes a team option for 2016 a team source said.

The deal which is not yet complete likely will be announced Monday. Collins 64 has a 224-260 record in three seasons at the Mets' helm entering Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Mets are 73-87 and in third place in the National League East this season. Despite the underwhelming record Collins has done a solid job keeping the Mets playing hard amid several obstacles.
