Joe McEwing is reportedly out of the running for Twins’ manager job.

McEwing will eventually find his way into a managerial job, but now is not the time. He just finished his third season as the third base coach for the White Sox and has received accolades for his managerial experience in the minor leagues, but it looks like the Twins are headed in another direction.

Doug Bernier was outrighted Monday and will elect to become a free agent.

Bernier played in seven games for the Twins this past season and batted .286 with two runs scored. He will be a non-roster invite to spring training with some team next year.

Miguel Sano (Tommy John surgery) won't be in the majors until 2016, according to Twins' GM Terry Ryan. Sano has been hitting, throwing and fielding grounders at Minnesota's spring training complex.

The power hitting prospect missed the 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery so he will be playing catch up next year. If he is able to produce at a high level, it is possible that he could be a late season call-up, but it seems more logical that the Twins will hold back his clock as long as they can. Though he underwent serious arm surgery, he is still considered to be a top prospect and has a very good shot at panning out when it's all said and done.

Yohan Pino (elbow) was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Monday.

Pino made 11 starts for the Twins this season and posted a 5.07 ERA with 50 strikeouts over 60.1 innings pitched. This past season marked Pino's rookie year but it is worth noting that he is already 30 years old. He is nothing more than a minor league journeyman that finally received a chance in the big leagues. His fantasy value is basically nonexistent.

White Sox coach Joe McEwing is the latest candidate to interview for Twins manager job.

The Twins are seemingly interviewing anyone and everyone for this position. At this rate, they'll have finished their interviews in 2016.

Red Sox have granted Twins permission to interview Torey Lovullo for manager job.

Lovullo, the Red Sox bench coach for the last two season, is a popular candidate for a number of coaching jobs this offseason. In addition to the Twins getting permission, he also interviewed for the job in Houston that ultimately went to A.J. Hinch and the Texas Rangers ahave also announced that he would interview for their coaching vacancy. Prior to the job in Boston, Lovullo served in the same capacity for two years with the Blue Jays.

Update: Paul Molitor has had multiple interviews with the Twins for the open manager job.

Molitor is a favorite to get the job after Ron Gardenhire was fired. He finished out his Hall of Fame career with the Twins, and then was Minnesota's bench coach for three years. In 2001 he was expected to take over the Twins as a manager, but he declined the offer and has spent the last couple of years as an assistant coach for the Twins.

Paul Molitor will interview to replace Ron Gardenhire as Twins' manager.

This doesn't come as much of a surprise considering that Molitor finished his career with the Twins and is a popular figure in Minnesota. Though there haven't been any other names linked to the Twins' managerial opening, you have to think that Molitor is the frontrunner at this point. Don't be surprised if Minnesota fills their vacancy relatively soon.
