Gardenhire out as Twins manager
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins announced Monday that they will replace Ron Gardenhire as manager in 2015.
Gardenhire managed the Twins for 13 seasons, compiling a record of 1068-1039 (.507), trailing only Tom Kelly on the franchise's all-time managerial wins list.
He was named American League manager of the year in 2010 and guided the Twins to six American League Central Division titles, including an ALCS appearance in 2002.
The Twins said they will begin immediately searching for a new manager, internally and externally. The coaching staff will be determined by the new manager in conjunction with general manager Terry Ryan.
The Twins will hold a news conference at 3 p.m. today at Target Field with Gardenhire and Ryan.
