Angels GM mum on Maddon after series of moves

Billy Eppler said the decision to fire manager Brad Ausmus was reached "collectively" and did not provide any hint that the job is Joe Maddon's to lose.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Angels GM Billy Eppler, alluding to reports that the managerial job is Joe Maddon's to lose: "We have a hiring process to go through, so I think it's premature to say anything contrary to that. We're gonna collect names this afternoon, and particularly plan on sitting down with a number of candidates. I would not handicap it any other way at this moment in time."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Angels GM Billy Eppler claimed the decision to fire Brad Ausmus was a mutual one, with input from owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino. He said the three will go over candidates later today and that the potential options "did not" play a role in the decision. Eppler was vague when I asked him how Ausmus' handling of the job prompted him to make a move after just one season, saying the team "fell short of expectations" and that "a new voice" was in the team's best interest.

In addition to Doug White, the Angels announced that Josh Paul also will not return this season. The new manager will have a new bench coach and a new pitching coach alongside of him. ESPN's Jeff Passan first reported White's departure.


BBTN: Brewers Injuries, Nationals Pitching, Numbers Game

With the Brewers and Nationals set to face off in tonight's winner-take-all NL Wild Card game, Buster speaks to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Todd Rosiak about Milwauke's swath of injuries (27:43) and MASN's Mark Zuckerman about Washington's pitching approach (34:01). But before that, Buster and Jon Sciambi discuss what kind of deal Anthony Rendon will command in the offseason, the firing of Brad Ausmus and more (3:37). Plus, Sarah Langs and a NL Wild Card-centric "Numbers Game" (22:50).

Will Maddon replace Ausmus in Los Angeles? (1:54)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Angels have fired Brad Ausmus after only one season as their manager, as first reported by ESPN's Buster Olney. This strikes me as a decision made above Billy Eppler, who is heading into the final year of his contract as Angels GM. Joe Maddon seems like the logical replacement.
