MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins general manager Terry Ryan has removed the interim tag from his title.
Ryan said Friday he's ``all set and committed and ready to go'' to try to turn around the Twins, who lost 96 games this season and 99 the year before.
His first offseason moves came Thursday, when he told bullpen coach Rick Stelmaszek, third base coach Steve Liddle, first base coach Jerry White and head athletic trainer Rick McWane their contracts weren't being renewed. Hitting coach Joe Vavra and bench coach Scott Ullger will stay on the staff but in different roles.
Manager Ron Gardenhire will enter the final year of his contract without an extension.
Ryan resigned as general manager in 2007 and remained as an adviser until Bill Smith was fired last year.
