Angels News: GM Perry Minasian Expected to Return, Will Hold Press Conference Tomorrow

Safe, for now.

The Angels made significant moves immediately following their 2023 season involving both manager Phil Nevin and general manager Perry Minasian. 

Anaheim announced that their manager Nevin wouldn't return after another disappointing season on the field, but Minasian's position is safe for another year into 2024. 

Minasian's choice to buy at the trade deadline didn't pan out after the team hit a slide in August, but he will be given another opportunity with new faces. 

An incoming press conference should tell much about the future of not just his job status but the roster he's assembled as a whole. 

The 2024 season could be a vital one for the franchise as the team might be preparing for life after Shohei Ohtani by the time January rolls around. 

The Japanese superstar failed in his quest to see playoff baseball, but it certainly wasn't for lack of trying. 

Spring's WBC MVP followed up his international trophy win with another stellar campaign at the Big A as he accounted for 10 WAR all by himself. 

A phenom on both sides of the ball, Ohtani unfortunately ended his season prematurely due to an elbow issue that'll keep him off the bump through next year and an oblique issue that shut his season down for good in September. 

Minasian's position remains a tough one with plenty of questions on the roster that include veteran talents on big contracts alongside young pieces bursting with potential. 

Some of Anaheim's farm could've been even stronger had Ohtani been dealt for a massive prospect haul at the deadline, but instead the team held onto him and capped their season potential in the process. 

Now hurt and likely to leave town, Anthony Rendon and Mike Trout head an Angels' lineup without much fanfare or notoriety. 

How much longer either of them will stay on the roster remains to be seen under Minasian, or possibly another executive's watch.
