Omar Minaya to talk with Sandy Alderson about a job

1 Comment

All that talk about ex-GM Omar Minaya scoring another job with the Mets might actually be real.

According to Ian Belgey of ESPN New York, Minaya plans to sit down with new general manager Sandy Alderson sometime after the New Year to discuss what role he could fit in the organization.

Minaya has also drawn interest from the Diamondbacks’ front office and may have a few other offers on the table.

He is still owed $1.1 million annually over the next two years via his contract with the Mets and he can take his time finding a favorable gig.

“He and I have been friends for a long time,” Alderson said of Minaya on Friday. “I have great respect for him as a baseball person. There’s always room for somebody with his capabilities.”

Minaya was canned in October after the Mets finished the 2010 season with a 79-83 record.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
