Mets GM Sandy Alderson met with Omar Minaya earlier in the week to determine Minaya's role in the Mets' revamped front office, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com. Alderson, who succeeded Minaya this October, said he outlined possible responsibilities for Minaya, who is still determining whether he wants to remain in the organization.
The Mets are paying Minaya for 2011 and 2012 regardless of whether he works for them. He'll earn about $1MM per year on his contract, which he signed after the 2008 campaign. For a closer look at the moves the Mets made under Minaya from 2004-10, check out MLBTR's Transaction Tracker.
