Terry Ryan will be back next season as general manager of the Twins, he told 1500ESPN in an interview Saturday.
On the heels of a third-consecutive 90-loss, there has been wide speculation over Ryan's job security and that of manager Ron Gardenhire. A decision on Gardenhire is expected shortly after the season, according to team sources.
People with knowledge of the situation believe the Twins and Gardenhire have discussed one- or two-year contract possibilities. The manager is said to be wary of signing a one-year deal when it appears the Twins still could be multiple years away from contending in earnest.
Gardenhire has 998 career wins with two games remaining in the season entering Saturday.
