MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have signed newly minted American League Manager of the Year Ron Gardenhire to a two-year contract extension through the 2013 season.

The Twins announced the deal Thursday, the day after Gardenhire was voted the league’s top manager for the first time in his nine-year career.

The Twins also gave two-year extensions through the 2012 season to Gardenhire’s entire coaching staff. The Twins have won the AL Central six times since he took over in 2002.

Minnesota went 94-68 this year before being swept in the first round of the playoffs by the New York Yankees.
