  The Minnesota Twins announced Monday that they have agreed with Manager Ron Gardenhire to a two-year contract extension, through the 2015 season.

  Gardenhire, 55, was named manager of the Twins on January 4, 2002. He has a career record of 998-947 (.513) as a major league manager, and trails only Tom Kelly on the Twins All-Time win list (1,140). Gardenhire earned the American League Manager of the Year award in 2010 and was named by fellow Managers as The Sporting News Manager of the Year that season.

  In addition, the Twins coaching staff will be invited back for the 2104 season.
