The Los Angeles Angels have hired Billy Eppler as their general manager.
The Los Angeles Times’ Bill Shakin reported the news first.
Eppler is currently the Yankees assistant general manager, a position he was promoted to after the 2011 season. Eppler has been with New York since after the 2004 season, when he joined the front office as a scout.
The Angels finished this season 85–77, one game behind the Houston Astros for an AL wild-card spot.
