Buck Showalter’s first coaching staff with the Mets is still under construction, but is close to taking at least one vacancy.

According to sources in The Post on Tuesday, the team is finalizing a deal with Joey Kora to become the new third base coach. Kora, 56, has spent the last five seasons in the same role as the Pirates.

Kora replaces Gary DiSarsina, who has spent the last three seasons as third base / infield coach. DiSarcina, who has not been retained as part of a staff reshuffle that included Luis Roxas’ resignation from the managerial post, has since joined the Nationals coaching staff.

Kora, who runs his brother Alex Red Sox, has a deep coaching resume in the major leagues, which includes working with the White Sox and Marlins. With the White Sox, he was the third head coach of the team that won the 2005 World Series.

Jeremy Hefner was retained by the Mets as a pitching coach after the season, but Showalter and CEO Billy Eppler still have to fill vacancies on the bench, first base and bullpen.

Joey is completing his contract with Kora Mets to become the third head coach.

With John Russell Mets, who worked as Schawalter’s reserve coach in Baltimore, he is among the opportunities to fill that role. Team officials were also impressed with Dodgers ’first base coach, Clayton McCallon, in an interview for the inauguration of the board at the Showalter, and could have hired him as a bench coach.
