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.
