The Minnesota Twins have named Garvin Alston pitching coach.
    
The 45-year-old Alston became bullpen coach for the Oakland Athletics last season after starting the year as the San Diego Padres' pitching rehab coordinator.
    
He previously served as bullpen coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks and as minor league pitching coordinator and minor league rehab pitching coordinator in two earlier stints with the A's. Alston pitched in the Rockies, Royals and Dodgers systems and made six major league appearances with Colorado in 1996.
    
The Twin announced Alston's hiring on Thursday. He replaces Neil Allen, who was let go after three seasons. The Twins' team ERA of 4.59 ranked 19th in baseball this season.
