Phil Nevin will not return as Angels manager in 2024, the team announced Monday.
Nevin took over as interim manager in June 2022 when Joe Maddon was fired and finished the season 46–60. After that, the Angels signed him to a one-year contract through 2023 and had to make a decision about where they would go in 2024. The Angels were aiming for their first postseason appearance this year since 2014 despite being eliminated.
While they started strong and tried to rebuild Shohei Ohtani at the trade deadline, they failed to make a run. Nevin finishes his season with the Angels with a record of 119-149. In the last week of the season, the players threw their support behind Nevin.
I love Phil, I love playing for Phil,” Mike Trout said. “He takes care of his guys. You know he wants what’s best for the team. And that was another thing about being out there because I know how much he cares about us.”
