Yankees hire Omar Minaya in advisory role as front office refresh continues

The New York Yankees have added another veteran executive to their front office. The Yankees have hired former New York Mets GM Omar Minaya as an advisor to baseball operations, the team announced Thursday. The Yankees recently hired former San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean as an executive advisor.

Minaya, 64, grew up in Queens and got into scouting after his minor-league playing career ended in the mid-1980s. He started his front office career with the Texas Rangers before moving on to the Mets, the Montreal Expos, back to the Mets, the San Diego Padres, and then back to the Mets for a third stint. He served as Expos GM from 2002-04 and Mets GM from 2005-10.

Most recently, Minaya worked with Major League Baseball as a consultant for domestic and international amateur scouting initiatives. He has been credited with helping the Rangers unearth players like Sammy Sosa and Hall of Famer Ivan Rodriguez during his scouting tenure with Texas. Minaya is regarded as one of the most successful and respected scouting minds in the game.
