ATLANTA -- Former Mets general manager Omar Minaya, who is helping to lead the San Diego Padres front office after the firing of Josh Byrnes, is not a candidate for the permanent position.

Padres chairman Ron Fowler told the San Diego Union-Tribune that Minaya will not pursue the vacant GM job but would like to remain with the organization. Minaya had served as a special assistant to Byrnes.

According to the newspaper, Los Angeles Dodgers VP of amateur scouting Logan White interviewed for the GM job Monday, while the Padres also are expected to interview Boston Red Sox assistant GM Mike Hazen and Texas Rangers assistant GM A.J. Preller.

White (as well as Byrnes) interviewed with the Mets when the GM job went to Sandy Alderson.
