MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have promoted Deron Johnson to senior adviser of scouting and Sean Johnson to director of scouting.

The Twins announced the promotions on Monday. Both men have been in the organization for years and will continue with the team even after Derek Falvey and Thad Levine took over the baseball operations department.

The 50-year-old Deron Johnson has been with the Twins since 1994 and was the director of scouting starting in 2007. His new duties will include some minor league and major league scouting assignments in addition to the amateur markets he's overseen for years.

Sean Johnson joined the Twins as a scout in 2002. As director of scouting he will oversee preparations for the draft and developing the amateur scouting staff.
