Derek Falvey

Chief Baseball Officer/EVP

Minnesota Twins




Derek Falvey joined the Twins as this issue went to press, coming from the ascendant Cleveland Indians, who were one hit from defeating the Chicago Cubs days earlier in the World Series. He will need all his scouting prowess and baseball analytics savvy to rebuild a drafting and player development system so distressed that it led to the unimaginable ouster of beloved General Manager Terry Ryan and capped half a decade of underperformance with Major League Baseball’s worst record in 2016.
