Notably Bob McClure as bullpen coach and Rudy Hernandez got a promotion to hitting coach.

Curious how it works to have co-hitting coaches with Edgar Varela having the same title.

Perhaps one of them is more fluent in Spanish than the other?

From Betsy Helfand last month:

 

 

MINNEAPOLIS — Rocco Baldelli’s 2020 staff is finally complete.

 

The Twins announced a series of moves on Friday to finalize a staff that endured three departures over the offseason. Three positions came open when bench coach Derek Shelton left to become the Pittsburgh Pirates’ manager, hitting coach James Rowson moved on to the Miami Marlins and assistant pitching coach Jeremy Hefner became the Mets’ pitching coach.

 

The Twins had previously announced Mike Bell would join the staff as bench coach and Edgar Varela was promoted to hitting coach. Friday, they announced that Rudy Hernandez, who had been serving as the team’s assistant hitting coach, would share the hitting coach title with Varela.
