Twins fire longtime GM Ryan

MINNEAPOLIS — Twins owner Jim Pohlad's reverence for GM Terry Ryan has been evident for almost two decades.

As the struggles on the field piled up over the past five years, that respect wasn't enough to keep Ryan with the Twins.

Ryan was fired Monday with the team holding the worst record in the American League and on pace to lose 100 games.

"Sometimes you may have to do things that are hard," Pohlad said. "I never try to shy away from hard decisions. I own this decision. We like to bring people from within up the organization. If we have to go outside we go outside."

Ryan, 62, said he is leaving with "immense pride in being part of the Twins organization for the better part of three decades."

Rob Antony, in his 29th season with the organization and ninth as assistant GM, takes over on an interim basis.

HACKING SCANDAL: A federal judge sentenced former Cardinals scouting director Christopher Correa to 46 months in prison for hacking the Astros' player personnel database and email system.

CARDINALS: 3B Jhonny Peralta sat out because of continued pain in his surgically repaired left thumb.

INDIANS: C Yan Gomes could miss two months after separating his right shoulder Sunday.

ORIOLES: 1B Chris Davis sat out after spending the night in a hospital with an illness.

REDS: C Devin Mesoraco had surgery on his right hip. He already was on the disabled list after surgery May 10 for a tear in his left shoulder.
