Director Showalter, who failed at NYM, moves to LAA and is a ‘candidate for new director’


Will manager Buck Showalter (67), who recently stepped down as head coach of the New York Mets, immediately lead another team? He has emerged as a candidate for manager of the LA Angels.

American MLB Network John Morosi reported on the 25th (Korean time) that Coach Showalter, who is now unemployed, is a candidate for the new manager of the Los Angeles Angels.

This is a connection with LA Angels general manager Perry Minassian. General Manager Minassian and Manager Showalter became friends during their days with the Texas Rangers.

General Manager Minassian worked as a scout in Texas from 2003 to 2009. Coach Showalter also led Texas from 2003 to 2006.

The Los Angeles Angels previously announced that they would not exercise the 2024 club option with manager Phil Nevin. Accordingly, the LA Angels have begun the process of selecting a new manager.

In this situation, Coach Showalter, who had a past relationship with General Manager Minassian, is being mentioned as a candidate for the new head coach. A situation where there is a good chance of success.

Previously, Coach Showalter ascended to the New York Mets command tower ahead of the 2022 season. However, they parted ways after recording 75 wins, 87 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.463 this season.

Starting with the New York Yankees in 1992, Manager Showalter led the Arizona Diamondbacks, Texas, Baltimore Orioles, and New York Mets.

He recorded 1,727 wins, 1,665 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.509 over 22 seasons. He has won the manager award four times throughout the league, but has no connection to winning the World Series.굿모닝토토

Coach Showalter is a coach with outstanding rebuilding skills. Attention is being paid to whether the Los Angeles Angels, who will have to create a new team if they miss Shohei Ohtani, will choose manager Showalter.
