I caught this during last night’s Rangers-Yankees game.  No word if Washington said that he was going to make some adjustments at halftime and recommit to the ground game or whatever the hell it is that “head coaches” say to sidelines reporters.

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.
