In the last 30 minutes we've also heard that Twins first base coach Jerry White has been let go. Of the moves that have come down from Terry Ryan's office today this one is the biggest surprise; I'd expected Rick Anderson to lose his job before White. It looks like, right now, Ron Gardenhire, Scott Ullger, and Anderson are the three men left standing.
Here are the two relevant Tweets from KARE 11 Sports Anchor Dave Schwartz.
Add Jerry White to the list of #Twins casualties today. I'm told he's also been let go by the team.— Dave Schwartz (@Dave_Schwartz) October 4, 2012
I will say that the Jerry White news comes from one "trusted" source. However, there has been no official confirmation from the team on this— Dave Schwartz (@Dave_Schwartz) October 4, 2012
It sounds like the Twins will be releasing a press release shortly about the moves they've made over the last few hours. We'll try to wrap our heads around this coaching cull after that.
