The Minnesota Twins are moving in a different direction in regards to their manager position, as the team announced that Paul Molitor will not return as manager but will remain with the organization in a different role next season, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.

Molitor, 62, posted a 305-343 record over four seasons as manager of the Twins over the past 4 seasons, finishing 78-84 this season which was 13 games behind the division leading Cleveland Indians.

“I would like to thank Paul for his tremendous dedication to the Minnesota Twins over his last four years as manager of this club,” Twins Executive Vice President, Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey said in a statement. “Paul’s roots here run deep and his commitment to the organization, his staff, and the players is special. I have every hope and desire that he remains a part of this club for many years to come.”

Minnesota has had “productive conversations” about keeping Molitor with the organization in another, undisclosed capacity and expect that he will accept the team’s offer.

“The importance and contribution of Paul Molitor to the Twins, our community and Major League Baseball cannot be diminished,” team owner Jim Pohlad said, via statement. “On behalf of our family, I offer thanks to Paul for his four years as Twins manager and look forward to the continuation of our relationship with him.”
