Angels hire Joe Maddon as new manager with three-year deal Report: Joe Maddon to become next Angels manager

He served as a big league assistant coach under five managers, and he had two stints as the Angels' interim manager. "We believe Joe will be a great asset for our club and look forward to him leading the team to another World Series championship".

Maddon is the newest manager of an Angels team marred by the opioid crisis and the loss of beloved teammate Tyler Skaggs from the 2019 season.

The 26-year old six-time All-Star felt good after the team's morning shootaround on Wednesday.

The Angels saw Brad Ausmus after his only season of 72-90 with the team.

The three-time Manager of the Year had been linked to the Angels job ever since the team fired Brad Ausmus on September 30, a day after Maddon and the Cubs announced they were parting ways. In 2016, he led the Cubs to their first World Series title in 108 years. According to multiple reports, Maddon signed a three-year contract, the terms of which haven't been publicly disclosed.

Maddon, 65, posted a 1225-1044 record over 14 seasons managing the Rays and Cubs.

It didn't take long for Maddon to find a job, as he reportedly agreed this week to join the Los Angeles Angels as their next manager. But instead of going to an up-and-coming team like the Padres or a squad on the cusp of the playoffs like the Phillies, Maddon opted to return to his baseball home.

He won a World Series ring with the franchise in 2002 as a bench coach under former manager Mike Scioscia. He left to manage the then-Devil Rays after the 2005 season, spending nine years in Tampa Bay. Chicago finished a disappointing 84-78 this season and missed the postseason. That stretch included two AL East titles and the American League pennant in 2008.

After getting the boot in Chicago, returning to the Angels appeared to be Maddon's first choice, much like he was the team's preferred option.

The Angels have not made the playoffs since 2014, and Maddon will hope to bring the franchise back to October baseball with the help of perennial all-star Mike Trout.

He had five 90-win teams in Tampa Bay and four more in Chicago, including the 103-win Cubs who went on to that historic World Series victory.
