Terry Ryan Vows To Evaluate Medical Staff After Team Leads League In Disabled List Stints

Former Twins general manager turned current Twins general manager Terry Ryan is rightfully concerned about injuries. After all, the Twins led all MLB teams by utilizing the disabled list 27 times last season.

“I think when everybody started to get concerned was the rehab time and how long after a sprained ankle it took to get back on the field,” Ryan said. “I’m aware of that and I have to talk to our medical people to get a better account of exactly why and some of the decisions that were made.”

Ryan also made sure not to blame the players for the injuries suffered, but urged that there needs to be more accountability from the training staff, coaching staff, players and even himself regarding injuries.

That said, Ryan went on to say that he does not expect any on-field coaching changes, pending manager Ron Gardenhire’s wishes.

The Twins won 63 games and finished in last place in the AL Central just one season after winning the division with a 94-68 record… so, yes, it is the time to question things.
