Twins announce staff changes

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Twins will not renew the contracts of third base coach Steve Liddle, bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek, first base coach Jerry White and head athletic trainer Rick McWane, the team announced Thursday.

Liddle had been a part of the Twins' coaching staff since 2002. He was initially the club's bench coach until moving to third base in 2011.

Stelmaszek joined the Twins' staff in 1981, while White had been the team's first base coach since 1998.

McWane was Minnesota's head athletic trainer for the last eight years. He had been the assistant trainer from 2002-04 and was the trainer for the club's Triple-A affiliate from 1996-2001.

The Twins also announced Scott Ulger will become the outfield instructor and Joe Vavra will instruct the infield.
