Minnesota Twins hand manager Molitor three-year extension
Paul Molitor turned the Twins' fortunes around in 2017 and has been rewarded with a three-year contract extension.
After becoming the first team in MLB history to go from 100 losses to the playoffs in consecutive seasons, the MinnesotaÂ TwinsÂ have agreed a contract extension with manager Paul Molitor.
Molitor will remain Minnesota's manager through the 2020 season, the club announced on Monday.
The 61-year-old's previous three-year deal expired after the Twins' 2017 campaign, which ended with an American League Wild Card Game loss to the New York Yankees last week.
Molitor is 227-259 in three seasons as the manager for the Twins, but led the team to an 85-77 record and a wild-card berth this seasonÂ after the team lost 103Â games in 2016.
He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame as a member of the Twins in 2016.
