According to's Alden Gonzalez, the Angels picked up general manager Jerry DiPoto's option for 2015 around the All-Star break.
That's not exactly the grandest of gestures, given the Angels' performance this season. Perhaps that's why there was no announcement when it happened. The Angels may want to go a little further this winter and give DiPoto a new two- or three-year deal. Sep 5 - 5:46 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Angels have hired Don Baylor as hitting coach.

Baylor served as the Diamondbacks' hitting coach in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and was asked to return in 2014. But he apparently got a better offer from Anaheim. Arizona will now have to fill the role of pitching coach, first base coach and hitting coach this offseason.

The Angels announced Tuesday that both manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto will return for the 2014 season.

Reports surfaced a couple months ago that Scioscia and Dipoto were butting heads during another disappointing season for the Angels, but they'll be back together again for at least one more campaign. The Halos have shaken up the coaching staff some, though, as bench coach Rob Picciolo and hitting coach Jim Eppard will not be back.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal has heard from sources that "tension persists" between Angels manager Mike Scioscia and Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto.

It's highly possible that Angels owner Arte Moreno will opt to shake things up this winter after another postseason-less campaign. And Rosenthal writes that Dipoto "would appear in greater jeopardy than Scioscia" because it was Dipoto who put together the current roster with a host of aggressive offseason moves. It doesn't help Dipoto's odds that he is only under contract through 2014 and Scioscia carries a guaranteed salary through 2018.
