Twins pitching coach Allen back 6 weeks after DWI arrest

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Twins pitching coach Neil Allen has rejoined the team six weeks after his arrest on suspension of drunken driving.

Allen was back with the team Thursday for the start of a four-game series at Texas, the last games before the All-Star break.

The Twins suspended Allen indefinitely after his arrest in the early morning hours of May 27 in downtown Minneapolis.

Without getting into specifics, manager Paul Molitor said Allen had completed the club's requirements and things that he needed to do.

Molitor said it was good to have Allen back with the team, and that the pitching coach was excited and walking around with a big smile.

Eric Rasmussen, the minor league pitching coordinator for the Twins, had filled in as pitching coach during Allen's absence.
