Angels News: Phil Nevin Officially Out as Halos Manager, GM Perry Minasian 'Appears Safe'

The inevitable has finally come.

Phil Nevin will not return as the manager of the Angels next season, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports. His one-year deal expires at the end of this season, and the team will not be giving him a second year.

Nevin took over during the 2022 season when Maddon was fired, and led the team to a 46-60 record in the final 106 games of a losing season.

He was given a chance to see what he could do with a full season, and went 73-89 with the Halos this year.

Injuries didn't help his case, but Nevin had tons of talent on his roster, yet wasn't able to be the voice of winning in Anaheim.

The team will now be looking for a new manager for the fifth time in the last seven years, as they try to get back to postseason contention for the first time since 2014.

It appears that Angels GM Perry Minasian will be leading that charge yet again, though, as Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that his job "appears safe." He's scheduled to hold a press conference tomorrow.

He will be tasked with not only finding the next manager of the Halos, but trying to build a roster that may not include Shohei Ohtani, who's heading to free agency.

He'll always have to decide if the team should trade Mike Trout and enter a full rebuild, or try to retool with this young core.

I'm sure a lot of those decisions will come when we know more on Ohtani.


The Angels made the announcement official regarding Nevin, and said Minasian will be available on Tuesday to speak to reporters via Zoom.
