The Los Angeles Angeles have hired Perry Minasian as their new general manager. He replaces Billy Eppler, who was fired by the team at the conclusion of the 2020 season.
The 40-year-old Minasian spent the last three seasons with the Atlanta Braves. During his time with the Braves, he was their Assistant General Manager.
Before coming to the Braves, he spent nine seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays.
“After an expansive process, we are thrilled to announce Perry as our general manager,” Angels owner Arte Moreno said in a statement. “His background in scouting and player development along with his unique understanding of roster construction were the leading factors in our decision. We are proud to welcome Perry, his wife, Michelle, and their four children to the Angels family.”
Minasian takes over a team, who has the best player in baseball. Despite having Mike Trout, the team is wasting his prime years.
This is a win now for Minasian. Besides Trout, the team also has Anthony Rendon and Albert Pujols — if he continues to play for the 2021 season.
The Angels have only made the playoffs once since the 2010 season. They were defeated by the Kansas City Royals in an American League Division Series sweep in 2014.
He’s taking over a team that went 26-34 in the 60-game MLB coronavirus schedule. That was good for fourth-place in the American League West.
Under Eppler, the team’s best record was 80-82. That happened twice in 2017 and 2018.
The worst record under Eppler was a 72-90 record in 2019.
