Krivsky rejoins Mets front office

Former Cincinnati Reds general manager Wayne Krivsky is returning to the New York Mets‘ front office.

The Mets announced Friday that Krivsky has been hired as a special assistant to general manager Omar Minaya. Krivsky, 55, held the same position with New York in 2008 and served as a special assistant to Orioles president Andy MacPhail last season.

Krivsky, who was born in Niagara Falls, was the Reds‘ GM from 2006-08.

The move came one day after New York agreed to one-year contracts with backup catchers Henry Blanco and Chris Coste. Blanco’s deal is worth $750,000 and Coste got $650,000.
