MINNEAPOLIS — Ron Gardenhire isn't going anywhere.

Gardenhire will be back with the Minnesota Twins next season, a team official with knowledge of the decision said Monday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the Twins had not made an official announcement ahead of an afternoon news conference.

Gardenhire is in the final year of his contract and his 12 years with the Twins make him the second-longest tenured manager in the big leagues.
