Former Rays manager Joe Maddon is on the move again. The L.A. Angels have reportedly reached a three-year deal to make him their manager.
Maddon spent 31 years with the Angels before leaving to become the Rays manager in the mid-2000s, where he took the Rays to the World Series in 2008. He then spent five seasons with the Cubs, where he won the 2016 World Series as well as two National league Central titles.
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.
L.A. dismissed manager Brad Ausmus after the team went 72-90 and finished fourth in the American League West this year in his first season in Anaheim.
