Angels finalize new manager Maddon’s coaching staff for 2020

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels have finalized new manager Joe Maddon’s coaching staff for the 2020 season, including the retention of hitting coach Jeremy Reed and the hiring of new pitching coach Mickey Callaway.

The Angels announced the full staff Wednesday.

Brian Butterfield will be the Angels’ third base coach. The veteran infield coach spent the past two seasons working under Maddon in the same job for the Chicago Cubs.

He has also had a career marketing a diet plan, owning a karaoke bar, running a detective agency, and practicing personal injury law, among other disasters, to the delight of the British and weirdos like me.

As Giants say bye to Bruce Bochy, uncertainty surrounds coaching staff

SAN FRANCISCO—The Madison Bumgarner sign outside the Second Street entrance at Oracle Park has been replaced by an even bigger one honoring his longtime manager. On the left field wall, there’s a picture of Bochy tipping his cap with a message—“Thank you Boch!”—that’s popping up all around the ballpark.

The next two homestands for the Giants largely will be about honoring Bochy, and for good reason. But there are others who are possibly coming to the end of the line, too.

The Giants on Tuesday let go of eight pro scouts, including a few men who had been with the organization for a long time. Farhan Zaidi is assessing the amateur scouting staff and the front office he inherited, and when the season ends, he will sit down with members of Bochy’s staff.

The coaching staff was all signed through 2019, and with a new manager coming in, it’s unclear how many—if any—familiar faces will return. That’s been a topic of discussion in the clubhouse at points this summer, but Zaidi, who spoke about the scouting changes Tuesday, said he didn’t want to dive into coaching staff decisions quite yet.

A consideration of how one transition tends to lead to more transitions.
