Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Twins fill farm director and head trainer's jobs

Posted by: Phil Miller under Farm System Updated: November 1, 2012 - 5:06 PM

The Twins named Brad Steil their new minor-league director today, removing the interim tag they gave him after Jim Rantz announced his retirement last month. Steil was the team’s director of baseball operations for the previous five seasons.

The Twins also filled their head trainer position, promoting longtime assistant Dave Pruemer into the lead role. Pruemer replaces Rick McWane, who was fired after eight years on the job. Tony Leo was named assistant athletic trainer, and Lanning Tucker was named assistant athletic trainer and rehab coordinator.

Meanwhile, Twins pitching prospect Kyle Gibson has been tabbed to start in Saturday night’s Rising Stars Game in the Arizona Fall League. Twins relief prospect Michael Tonkin also was picked for the game, which will be televised live on MLB Network at 7 p.m.
