Molitor Added To Staff

— The Minnesota Twins have added Paul Molitor to their coaching staff.

The team announced the decision Tuesday. Since 2005, Molitor has served as a minor league base running and infield coordinator for the organization. He was a coach on manager Tom Kelly’s staff in the 2000 and 2001 seasons and also was hitting coach for Seattle in 2004, the year he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The Twins re-signed manager Ron Gardenhire to a two-year contract and brought back the rest of his assistants. Molitor will oversee base running, bunting, infield instruction and positioning plus assist with in-game strategy from the dugout.

The 57-year-old Molitor played the last three of his 21 major league seasons for the Twins. He grew up in nearby St. Paul.
