Tim Bogar joins Angels after being passed over by Rangers

1 Comment

Tim Bogar was passed over for the Rangers’ managerial opening in favor of Jeff Banister despite leading the team to a 14-8 record down the stretch as interim manager and now he’s joining another organization.

Bogar, who served as bench coach under Ron Washington and has filled a variety of coaching roles in the majors for several different teams, will be a special assistant to Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto.

New gig aside, it’s possible that Bogar may yet emerge as a candidate to be the Rays’ manager.
