Los Angeles Angels hire Ron Washington as next manager


Ron Washington is getting another chance to manage in Major League Baseball, as the Los Angeles Angels named him their new manager on Wednesday.

Washington, who recently signed a three-year deal to remain with the Atlanta Braves as their third base coach, agreed to a two-year pact with the Angel, Audacy MLB insider Bob Nightengale reports.

Washington, 71, hasn't managed since he resigned as manager of the Texas Rangers in 2014. In his eight seasons at the helm in Texas, Washington led the Rangers to five winning seasons, two division titles and two American League Championships in 2010 and 2011.

Washington will replace Phil Nevin, whom the Angels fired at the end of the season. He'll become the fourth Angels manager in the last six seasons.
