Angels likely to move on from Brad Ausmus?
Brad Ausmus could be on the outs in Anaheim less than a year into his tenure.
ESPN’s Buster Olney reported on Sunday that the Los Angeles Angels manager is in jeopardy of losing his job. Olney adds that Ausmus’ status is currently under consideration by the team’s leadership and that one source believes it is more likely than not that the Angels will go a different direction.
The 50-year-old Ausmus was hired in October of last year, taking over for longtime Angels skipper Mike Scioscia, who resigned after 19 seasons at the helm. Ausmus signed on for a three-year deal, and his just-concluded first season saw the team go 72-90, their worst finish in two decades.
The timing of this news may not be too coincidental either, as one big-name candidate that the Angels are well acquainted with just became available.
