The Minnesota Twins will retain hitting coach Tom Brunansky under new manager Paul Molitor.

Brunansky will return on a one-year contract after spending the previous two seasons in the role.

"I think we accomplished quite a bit this year," Terry Ryan said of an offense that jumped in runs from 25th in the majors in 2013 to seventh in 2014.

The Twins also surged forward in on-base-plus-slugging percentage, from 23rd in the majors in 2013 to ninth in 2014.
