Twins to replace manager Paul Molitor

Twins to replace manager Paul Molitor

Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor will not lead the squad next season and has been offered a new role in the organization, the team said Tuesday. They value the reigning American League Manager of the Year and have offered him a different role within the organization, one likely focused on player development. He just doesn't want him to be the Twins' manager. While Levine said they don't yet have anyone on a short list to become the next Twins.

The Minnesota Twins have fired Paul Molitor. Before that, he was the minor league strength and conditioning coordinator for five seasons. I think Paul understands that. "It's never the right time to make a hard decision, and it's never easy".

The 2017 Twins made the playoffs after losing 103 games in 2016, leading to higher expectations this season.

Falvey said negotiations for his extension also included what Molitor's future with the Twins might look like if he weren't managing. They finished this year 78-84, a disappointment after making it to the postseason last year with an 85-77 record. "We felt like now was the time to have that conversation", he said.

Koepka was quick to make his way over to the crowd and apologise to Remande, who was later treated at an eye hospital in Paris. Remande will discuss her options with a legal team today but told AFP she wants compensation.


The team's 2017 season earned Paul Molitor Manager Of The Year Award honors, and a victor for this last season has not yet been announced, meaning he is still the reigning Manager of the Year.

Molitor was a Hall of Fame player who finished his 21-year career with three seasons with the Twins.

President Dave St. Peter said that he had reason to believe that Molitor would consider taking the new job in some yet-undefined capacity. "And I think if we do that, the wins and losses will probably take care of themselves, and the gap we see right now between ourselves and the Cleveland Indians will start closing pretty rapidly".
