The New York Mets and San Francisco Giants have vacant general roles in their respective front offices. And while nothing was set in stone for him to interview for either job, former Red Sox GM Ben Cherington has withdrawn in his name from consideration, according to MLB insider Ken Rosenthal.

Wants to build an organization from ground up. Happy in current role as VP of baseball operations with #BlueJays.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) October 4, 2018
Cherington wants to be GM again, but he's happy with his current role with the Toronto Blue Jays as the Vice President of Baseball Operations. While the Mets and Giants should consider tearing it down, they aren't -- not yet, anyway -- and Cherington wants to build an organization from the ground up.

Cherington has been linked to the #Mets' GM vacancy in recent months.https://t.co/0x0ldRygQC
Cherington was linked to the Mets during the regular season once it became clear they were going to have to find someone to replace Sandy Alderson, who stepped aside to undergo another round of cancer treatment.
