San Diego Padres To Hire Omar Minaya, Former Mets GM

The San Diego Padres have hired former New York Mets and Montreal Expos general manager Omar Minaya, according to a tweet from Sports Illustrated’s Jon Heyman.

Minaya is expected to serve as an assistant to the Padres current general manager Josh Byrnes. He is best known for his work with the New York Mets where he attracted high profile free-agents Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado, Pedro Martinez, and Francisco Rodriguez, however, he was never able to help put together a team that helped the Mets get past the National League Championship Series. A series of injuries and leadership failures took the Mets out of contention and eventually Minaya was dismissed by New York in October of 2010.

Minaya had been rumored for the open general manager position with the Los Angeles Angels, but the club ultimately gave that job to Jerry Dipoto.
