(MINNEAPOLIS) — The Minnesota Twins announced on Tuesday that Paul Molitor has been added to their coaching staff.
The Hall of Famer will handle baserunning, bunting, infield instruction and positioning. He will also assist manager Ron Gardenhire with in-game strategy from the dugout.
The 57-year-old Molitor previously served as the hitting coach for the Seattle Mariners in 2004. Since 2005, he has served in the Twins minor league organization as a baserunning and infield coordinator.
The seven-time All-Star played 21 big-league seasons, including his last three with the Twins. He is just one of six players to have at least 3,000 hits and 500 stolen bases.
