Twins Relieve General Manager Terry Ryan of His Duties
Minnesota Twins General Manager Terry Ryan has been relieved of his duties, the team announced Monday.
Ryan has been with the team for a number of years, and was named GM on Nov. 7, 2011, after spending four previous seasons as a special assistant to the general manager.
Released in a statement, “While disappointed we were unable to bring Minnesota a third World Championship, I leave the GM post with immense pride in being part of the Twins organization for the better part of three decades, Ryan said. “I’m grateful for the leadership opportunities provided by the Pohlad family; the collaboration and talents of my colleagues in the front office; the hard work and dedication of our manager, coaches and clubhouse personnel; the commitment and professionalism of our players; the passion and attention to detail of our minor league staff and scouts; and most importantly, the incredible support of our fans. It’s been an honor to be part of the Twins organization and I wish everyone nothing but the best going forward.”
Vice President and Assistant General Manager Rob Antony will take over Ryan’s duties on an interim basis.
