The Twins have hired Indians assistant general manager Derek Falvey as executive vice president and chief baseball officer.
Falvey, 33, spent nine seasons in the Indians front office since being hired as an intern in the baseball operations department in November 2007. Falvey, who pitched at Trinity College, became assistant director of baseball operations in 2011 and director of operations in 2012. He was promoted to assistant GM last fall after Ross Atkins left to became GM of the Blue Jays.
“It’s a tremendous honor to have the opportunity to lead the Twins baseball operation,” Falvey said in a statement. “This is a proud, resilient franchise, and I’m eager to return championship-caliber baseball to the Twin Cities.”
The Twins fired two-term GM Terry Ryan in July and Rob Antony had served as interim GM since then.
