Another one two bites the dust.

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Prior to the 2019 season, Brad Ausmus and Doug White were both hired onto the Angels coaching staff.

Ausmus was fired yesterday, now it is Doug White’s turn.

Both subpar talent and subpar results were achieved on the mound in 2019, as the Angels struggled to a league-worst 3.3 fWAR from their starting rotation. The Halos’ entire pitching corps recorded abysmal marks in ERA (5.12), FIP (5.04), and HR/9 (1.67). It was not a good season on the pitching side, though one should note that signings Matt Harvey, Trevor Cahill, and Cody Allen were shaky from the start.

Prior to his hire, White was on the MLB pitching staff of the Houston Astros.

Update: The Angels announce they have fired their bench coach, Josh Paul.

Paul was brought on ahead of the 2019 season.
