Mickey Callaway has lost yet another managing job in baseball.

The disgraced former MLB manager and pitching coach was fired from his job as skipper of the Mexican League team Acereros de Monclova.

“The results force us to make moves in order to have a season that lives up to the expectations of our fans,” the team said in a statement on Monday. “We want to reiterate our absolute respect and admiration for Mr. Mickey Callaway, who we wish much success in his future baseball projects.”

Under Callaway the team went 16-17 and is fifth in its division.

Callaway was fired as the Mets manager in 2019 after two seasons in which the team went 163-161. The Mets finished fourth in the NL East his first year and had a winning season his second year, but failed to make the playoffs. He was terminated before he could complete the three-year contract he signed.

He was fired again as the Angels pitching coach in 2021 and put on MLB’s ineligible list through the end of the 2022 season for allegations of sexual harassment and mistreatment of women.

A February 2021 report alleged that Callaway sent sexually explicit images and requests for nude photos to multiple women who worked with him, many of whom were reporters. The allegations surrounding Callaway also included his time with the Mets.

He will be eligible to apply to MLB for reinstatement following this season.
