NEW YORK — Terry Collins got a private vote of confidence from ownership earlier this week in addition to the public one from general manager Sandy Alderson, a baseball source told Newsday on Friday night.

The Mets manager, reported Tuesday to be on the hot seat, was assured privately that his seat is not that hot after all. That was before Alderson told reporters, “He’s not going anywhere.”

Collins’ job security has become an issue in some quarters as the Mets have suffered through a June swoon. They are 30-37. But Collins said he’s still having “fun.”

The Mets lost eight of nine after going 6-1 following the Memorial Day firing of hitting coach Dave Hudgens.

Collins hasn’t been able to make the Mets successful lately despite solid starting pitching. He has become part cheerleader and part tough-love father figure as he tries to win while developing young players and dealing with injuries and poor performances.

Notes

• The San Diego Padres signed their top draft pick, speedy shortstop Trea Turner from North Carolina State. Turner was selected No. 13 overall last week.

• Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez (shoulder soreness) will come off the 15-day disabled list early next week.

• Cincinnati Reds right-hander Mat Latos will be activated Saturday and make his season debut that night against the Milwaukee Brewers.

• Sidelined for more than a year by injuries, Miami Marlins second baseman Rafael Furcal was in the lineup for the first time this season.

• St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright said his elbow injury is not serious. He could miss a start to allow the tendinitis to calm down.
