The Twins announced today that they have agreed to contract extensions with Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey and General Manager Thad Levine. The new deals lock up Falvey and Levine through 2024. They were already under contract through 2021.

Falvey was hired in October 2016 after serving time in the Indians organization. Levine was hired a month later, coming from Texas. Under their leadership the Twins went from a 103-loss season in 2016 to 85 wins and the Wild Card in 2017. The team backslid some in 2018 but won 101 games and the AL Central in 2019.

The Twins have a solid core at the moment with Max Kepler, Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sanó and José Berríros. Now they have ensured stability in their front office for some time.
