FORT MYERS, Florida (KCRG) - The Minnesota Twins made some changes to their coaching staff this season naming Rocco Baldelli as the manager. Baldelli then named former Kernels manager Tommy Watkins as the first base coach.
"It was shocking," said Watkins. "I didn't believe it."
Watkins will get to work closely with several former Kernels players he helped develop during his time as the hitting coach in Cedar Rapids, including Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and Jorge Polanco.
He talks about all of those topics in this week's Sunday Night Spotlight.
