Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram confirms that Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine is the top candidate to become the Twins' next GM.
The report came first from LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, though Wilson tweeted late Tuesday that it's "premature to call [the] hire official." Derek Falvey was named the Twins' new president of baseball operations in late September, at the ripe age of 33. Levine, 44, would work under Falvey. There should be something more concrete from the Twins after the conclusion of the World Series.
