The Minnesota Twins are right around a month away from when they fired Ron Gardenhire, their manager for over a decade. Today, Torey Lovullo, the Boston Red Sox bench coach is getting a second interview with the Twins.

According to Derek Wetmore of 1500 ESPN, a source close to the situation has said the Lovullo will indeed interview a second time for the Twins. It is expected to take place today, and is not expected to happen in the Twin Cities.

While Paul Molitor is still viewed as the favorite to land the Minnesota Twins managerial position, nothing has been announced and candidates continue to surface.

Doug Mienkiewicz was also interviewed twice by the Twins, making himself, Molitor, and Lovullo the only men to stake that claim.

Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press also brings another name to light. While it may seem late in the process, Terry Ryan did note there were some names competing in the postseason that he may be interested in.

Also, with Joe Maddon leaving the Rays over the weekend, the Twins were believed to have interest. While they should definitely have had interest, Wetmore makes it sound as though the feeling is not mutual. With Maddon leaving on his own, he is going to pick his next spot, and the Cubs look like the best bet.

Minnesota is not expected to announce anything today despite it being a World Series off day.

Torey Lovullo interviewed once already and it is believed to have gone very well. He will be looking to shift the tides in his favor today. Stay tuned as the story continues to unfold.
