The Twins on Saturday fired four of their area scouts as the the makeover of the organization continued. The ones let go were:

Marty Esposito, a longtime scout who covered Texas.

Alan Sandberg, who covered Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and upstate New York.

Ted Williams, who covered Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and parts of Nevada.

And Mark Wilson, who covered North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Wilson signed local products like Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins.

After taking several months to evaluate the organization, Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey and General Manager Thad Levine are expected to make several changes as they reshape the organizations, and some longtime employee could be replaced.

Keep in mind that Falvey has an agreement to not hire anyone from Cleveland, his previous organization, for a year. That year runs out in October.
