NEW YORK, N.Y. - Omar Minaya is switching sides.The former New York Mets general manager left his job as senior vice-president of the San Diego Padres on Thursday to become a special adviser to Major League Baseball Players Association head Tony Clark.Born in the Dominican Republic, Minaya started in baseball management as a scout for the Texas Rangers, where he helped sign Sammy Sosa. He became the major leagues first Hispanic general manager with the Montreal Expos from 2002 to 2004. He left the Expos to become GM of his hometown Mets, who fired him after the 2010 season. He was hired by the Padres in December 2011 as senior VP of baseball operations under GM Josh Byrnes, who was fired last June.Our membership that comes from the Latin countries is growing, Clark said. That means having folks on staff that are reflective of those countries, that have the ability to communicate with players in their native language.Minaya will focus on international affairs and game development in the U.S., including amateur ball. The number of Dominican and Cuban players in the major leagues has increased, and management hopes to get agreement on an international draft in the collective bargaining agreement that expires after the 2016 season. Currently, only players residing in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico are subject to a draft.These are going to be major issues as the game goes forward, Minaya said.He is following the path of Hall of Famer Dave Winfield, who left his job as executive vice-president/senior adviser of the Padres after a dozen years in December 2013 to become a special assistant to Clark at the Major League Baseball Players Association.It probably hasnt happened very often, said Clark, the former All-Star first baseman who took over as union chief after Michael Weiners death in November 2013.The 56-year-old Minaya is reversing the path of former major leaguer Tony Bernazard, who was a special assistant for the union from 1992 until he left to work for Minaya and the Mets from 2004-09.Clark said he expected it to be a long relationship. Minaya said it was difficult to leave scouting and player development.When you are a baseball operations guy, and you are a guy like myself, every morning you wake up and youre thinking youre in the hunt, the hunt for that player, Minaya said. Look, I love scouting. I loved being a scout. I loved talking to coaches, talking to family, talking to players, understanding that. Every day you wake up, if youre the general manager, you try to get that trade. If youre a scout, you try to beat somebody to a player.

CLEVELAND -- When their turnaround season hit a dead end in October, long after most expected it to stop, the Indians spent a few minutes reflecting on their six-month thrill ride and what might have been. There wouldnt be any more champagne, but there was plenty to celebrate. "We proved a lot of people wrong," first baseman Nick Swisher said. "Still, it hurts." The pain, though, was only temporary. Following a 4-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL wild-card game on Wednesday night, there were few tears as the Indians said goodbye to a year none of them will ever forget. They became a close-knit group, bonding under first-year manager Terry Francona, who not only oversaw a 24-win improvement from 2012, but made them believe anything is possible. "All this team really ever needed was a heartbeat," said 42-year-old designated hitter Jason Giambi, "and we kept it all the way down to the end." In returning to the post-season for the first time since 2007, the Indians rekindled their on-again, off-again relationship with Cleveland fans, who had grown distant and disenchanted in recent years mostly because of the teams inability to re-sign Cy Young winners CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee. But although they may not have shown their support at the box office during the regular season, Indians fans were there when it mattered most. Dressed in red, more than 43,000 of them raged for three hours as they urged the Indians, a team that pulled off 11 walk-off wins and won their last 10 games to make the playoffs, to give them one more magical moment. It wasnt to be. "There wasnt one guy that didnt think we werent winning that game in the bottom of the ninth," said All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis. "We didnt come up with the big hit." The Indians blew several scoring chances against Tampa Bay starter Alex Cobb., who deserves credit for making pitches when he needed to. But Clevelands failure in the clutch -- one of their strengths during the season -- can at least partially be pinned on Swisher, Kipnis and leadoff hitter Michael Bourn. The trio went a combined 0 for 12 with four strikeouts. Its just one game, but Swishers post-season problems have trailed him from Oakland to Chicago to New York and now to Cleveland. Hes batting .165 in 47 career playoff games. With two runners on in the seventh inning, Swisher, swinging out of his cleats at every pitch to try and hit a game-tying homer, struck out on three pitches from reliever Joel Peralta. The at-bat summed up Swishers night and further exposed one of Clevelands glaaring weaknesses, the lack of a big, run-producing bat in the middle of the lineup.dddddddddddd The Indians didnt have a player with 85 RBIs, and one of general manager Chris Antonettis top priorities in the off-season is to find a slugger. That wont be easy, but Antonetti, who has been aggressive in rebuilding the Indians -- with owner Paul Dolans financial backing -- could get creative with trades perhaps involving closer Chris Perez, catcher Carlos Santana or shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. All three had disappointing 2013 seasons and could be dealt to bolster Clevelands power. Another issue for the Indians to address is their inability to beat quality teams. They were just 14-33 against the playoff teams in both league and 54-17 against teams with under .500 records. "We had a good year, but one thing we did wrong was not play better against teams like the Rays," Bourn said "Thats something well improve on." The starting pitching, a major question mark when the season started, became a strength with Ubaldo Jimenez bouncing back from a 17-loss season to win 13 and lead the Indians staff down the stretch -- 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA in September -- when All-Star Justin Masterson was injured. Jimenez has an $8 million mutual option for next season with a $1 million buyout. If he chooses to venture into free agency, Jimenez could land a monster deal but he appreciated the Indians willingness to stick with him during tough times. "They did everything possible to help me out," he said. "They never gave up on me." Left-hander Scott Kazmir, too, said he would like to return to the Indians, who signed him to a minor league deal in January and got 10 wins on a $1 million investment. Reliever Joe Smith, another possible free agent, has told the Indians he wants to stay. Giambi, who essentially saved the season last week with a pinch-hit, ninth-inning homer to beat Chicago as the Indians were fighting for a wild card, doesnt know what his future holds. Francona has credited Giambi, more than any other player, for Clevelands stunning rebound. Giambi could receive managerial offers after nearly getting Colorados job last year, but he wouldnt mind being a part of this Indians revival. "I had the time of my life, no doubt about it," he said. "Its been fun. Ive enjoyed every minute watching this ballclub grow and being a part of it. We came together. We exceeded everybodys expectations, now guys have a little taste of what its like to go to the playoffs, so hopefully they continue to work hard and keep that push."
