Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto has announced that he has resigned from his position.
Owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino made a last-ditch effort to try and keep Dipoto around, but it didn't work. Dipoto's relationship with manager Mike Scioscia has become frayed enough to this point that it didn't make sense to stick around. ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported previously that assistant general manager Matt Klentak is expected to be promoted to take Dipoto's vacated spot. Jul 1 - 2:59 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Angels assistant general manager Matt Klentak is expected to be promoted to general manager.

That's assuming Jerry Dipoto leaves, which is expected even though FOX Sports' Jon Morosi has reported that owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are making a last-ditch effort to keep him. A resolution is expected later Wednesday.
Jul 1 - 12:33 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that Angels owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are "still trying to broker a peace" between general manager Jerry Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia.

Various earlier reports said the Dipoto was definitely leaving, but Morosi is hearing it's not a done deal yet. It's hard to imagine Dipoto and Scioscia repairing their fractured relationship at this point, but we'll see. The situation should be resolved later Wednesday.
Jul 1 - 11:45 AM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Jerry Dipoto is "definitely out" as the Angels general manager.

Crasnick says Dipoto went to owner Arte Moreno with an ultimatum, "and it backfired." FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal hears that Dipoto "packed up his office and left today," but it's not clear whether he "acted out of emotion" or if he's resigning. Dipoto and manager Mike Scioscia have long had a rocky relationship, and things reached a head after Rosenthal published an article earlier this week about the two's working relationship getting worse. We should hear something definitive on Dipoto later Wednesday.

Mike Scioscia was ejected from Friday's game against the Athletics for arguing a close call at first base.

Johnny Giavotella appeared to beat out a close play at first base, but as the Angels were out of challenges, Scioscia was unable to challenge the play and attempted to argue to no avail.

According to MLB.com'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.

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.
