Omar Minaya To Become Padres Vice President

NEW YORK (AP) — Former New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya will be hired as a vice president of the San Diego Padres.

Minaya was discussing a job with new Padres general manager Josh Byrnes that will give him a title along the lines of vice president of baseball operations. Minaya will remain based in New Jersey, his longtime home.

His salary will be offset from the approximately $1.4 million the Mets owe him next year in the final season of his contract.
