Twins to hire Baldelli, 37, as manager

Baldelli, a Rhode Island native, spent six of his seven major league seasons as a player with the Rays, interrupted only by a stint with the Red Sox during the 2009 season.

If you squinted hard enough, you could maybe see a little bit of Minnesota and the Twins ingrained in Rocco Baldelli.

Still, it's clear that these are no longer your father's Minnesota Twins.

When they heard that, Levine added, it became a search for the manager "we felt could help us refine our scouting philosophy; help us find somebody who could help push us on player personnel, acquisitions; somebody who could help us when we're going through our minor league system when we're evaluating minor league talent".

For the past four years, Baldelli has coached for the Tampa Bay Rays, where he played six of his seven seasons as an Major League Baseball outfielder. He also is the first base coach. It seems quite possible that Shelton, who served on the Rays' coaching staff with Baldelli until being hired by the Twins last offseason, could remain on hand as the bench coach, given his familiarity with Baldelli. In 2017, the Twins reached the AL Wild Game card, but lost to the New York Yankees. Baldelli was a special assistant in the front office for four seasons prior to that.

They might have found their guy in Baldelli.

Baldelli is 37 years old and played for the Rays.
