 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan has decided to resign, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made. The Twins scheduled a news conference for 2 p.m. to announce a ``major'' reorganization of its baseball operations.
Ryan was in a meeting Thursday and didn't immediately return a telephone call.
The Star Tribune also reported Ryan's plan to resign, citing three unnamed sources with the team.
The Twins won the American League Central last season, but are two games under .500 this season and out of the playoff chase.
Ryan, 52, is in his 12th season as GM. He has been highly regarded throughout baseball for his work in crafting a contender with a limited payroll. The Twins have received several awards for Organization of the Year this decade, but Ryan began to take some heat this year for the signings of some unproductive veterans and failures to lock up some of the team's stars to long-term contracts.
Assistant general manager Wayne Krivsky, who was long lauded for his behind-the-scenes work as Ryan's right-hand man, left before last season to take over as Cincinnati's general manager.
Krivsky was never replaced, though director of baseball operations Rob Antony added ``contracts'' to his title earlier this year and became more involved with assistant general manager Billy Smith in the negotiating with players' agents.
Manager Ron Gardenhire signed an extension last fall that takes his contract through 2009.
