Nov. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Omar Minaya, the former New York Mets’ general manager, has been offered a position as special assistant with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the New York Daily News reported, citing unidentified people.

Minaya, 52, fired as Mets general manager and executive vice president of baseball operations on Oct. 4 with two years and about $2.5 million remaining on his contract. In six seasons under Minaya the Mets made the playoffs once, in 2006.

When he was fired, Minaya mentioned that he and the Mets had discussed his staying with the team in another capacity. Minaya will meet with his replacement as general manager, Sandy Alderson, to discuss a possible position with the Mets, the report said.

Jay Horwitz, the Mets’ vice president of media relations, said in a telephone interview that he was unaware of the Diamondbacks’ job offer. Horowitz also said there were no updates as to Minaya’s possible future with the team.
