ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Minnesota Twins will not renew the contracts of Joel Skinner, Stu Cliburn, and Javier Valentin, Twins Director of Minor League Operations Jeremy Zoll has announced.

Skinner was the Rochester manager for the last two seasons, leading the Red Wings to a combined 134-146 record. The Wings broke a record for total numbers of players used in each year, including 74 in 2019.


Minnesota will need to replace Rochester’s manager, hitting coach, and pitching coach for 2020. It will mark the first time that not one of those three positions will return to the Red Wings the following season since the affiliation with the Twins began in 2003.
