The Major League Baseball season may have only ended a couple of days ago on Sunday, but it appears that managerial dominoes are already set to fall after some front offices evaluate their team’s performances in 2019.
One of those managers that could be on his way out, according to league sources, is Angels manager Brad Ausmus.
Ausmus has only been on the job with the Angels for a year, but it appears that the team’s front office might be unhappy enough to decide to send him packing after only one campaign. The Angels posted their worst record in 20 years in 2019, going 72-90 in the tough AL West.
For a team with a superstar such as Mike Trout, it has to be disappointing for Angels brass that they weren’t able to get more out of a team that they expect to contend for the playoffs. While Ausmus had to deal with a roster that had shortcomings, especially on its pitching staff, the 72-90 record was something that the team definitely wasn’t expecting.
With managers such as Joe Maddon on the market, the Angels may try their luck with a new voice at the top of the organization.
