Sunday Notes: Brad Ausmus Embraced Analytics, Aced His Angels Interview | FanGraphs Baseball

The characteristics Eppler is looking for — not just on the coaching staff, but throughout the organization — can be encapsulated in a single, hyphenated sentence:

“We want people who have a growth mindset and are adaptable — not open-minded; adaptable — and want to learn and evolve, and implement things if it makes sense to implement them.”

In Eppler’s opinion, Ausmus embodied those characteristics. Augmented by his familiarity with the system — Ausmus spent 2018 working in the Angels front office — it’s the reason he got his current job.
