The Twins announced their Minor League managerial and coaching staffs this past Friday and there was only one major change from last season. Former Baltimore Orioles manager (2005-2007) Sam Perlozzo has been named Minnesota’s Minor League infield and base running coordinator. Perlozzo replaces Paul Molitor who was added to the Twins coaching staff for the 2014 season.
Perlozzo was signed by the Twins as an amateur free agent in 1972 and was a teammate of GM Terry Ryan in Orlando in 1976. Perlozzo, a second baseman played 10 games for the Twins in September of 1977 but was released by Minnesota in March 1979.
I did an interview with Sam in the spring of 2012 when he was a coach with the Philadelphia Phillies that you can listen to at http://wp.me/P1YQUj-1ig .
