Unless you’ve been living under a rock where no Twins baseball exists (good for you), you know that the team is looking to hire a new President of Baseball Operations as part of their restructuring of the front office. Well, news broke today that the Twins are set to hire Indians Assistant GM Derek Falvey as their man. Maybe.
The deal hasn’t been confirmed by the team yet, but apparently ESPN’s Keith Law is already treating it like it’s as a done deal. Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press, however, is reporting that the selection process is “still ongoing”.
If you don’t recall, Falvey is the young Indians executive (only 33 years old!) who is known for his “people skills” and getting along with everyone. He has an analytical mindset, but again, has only served as assistant general manager for the Indians for one year. Despite his relatively inexperience, current Indians manager Terry Francona referred to Falvey as a “rising star.”
