It looks like New York Mets General manager Omar Minaya and manager Jerry Manuel will not be returning to their roles when the team begins its 2011 season.

An official announcement is expected to be made before the playoffs begin next week.

According to Sports Illustrated, Minaya may have an option that would allow him to leave his post as general manager, but he may be able to stick with the organization in another capacity.

The Met's reportedly have an option on Manuel's contract that won't be renewed.

Minaya joined the Amazin's during the final week of the 2004 season and was credited with signing on baseball stars like Pedro Martinez and Carlos Beltran.

The Mets are currently 77-82, eliminated from playoff contention and 18 games out of first place in the NL East.

The Mets declined to comment on the report.
