The cull continues.

In LEN III's most recent update, third base coach Steve Liddle has been fired and hitting coach Joe Vavra has been reassigned. Liddle had been with the Twins since 1988, carrying on what will be seen as a major shakeup for a team that prides itself on consistency after firing bullpen coach and 32-year franchise employee Rick Stelmaszek earlier today. Liddle had been a member of Twins staff since 2002; Vavra since 2006.

Neal has more:

Pitching coach Rick Anderson was scheduled to meet with Ryan around noon. Bench coach Scott Ullger was to meet with Ryan at 1 p.m. and Jerry White was expected to meet with Ryan at 2 p.m.

Class AAA Rochester manager Gene Glynn and Rochester hitting coach Tom Brunansky could be in line for promotions. So could Rochester pitching coach Bobby Cuellar.

This will also be of interest:

So far as we know, everyone who has been called into Ryan's office has been fired. We'll see what happens with Ullger in the near future.
