work and ready to be part of the team that we have–good guys put their
nose to the ground and bust their butts–we’ll take anybody.”


“It’s good to have a power left-handed bat (in) Safeco (Field). His
ability never has been the question. It’s the locker room-type stuff.
As long as we figure that out, awesome.”

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
