Billy Eppler has been named general manager of the Los Angeles Angels.
Eppler replaces interim GM Bill Stoneman, who took over after Jerry Dipoto quit his job at midseason following his latest disagreement with Mike Scioscia, the longest-serving manager in baseball.
Eppler, 40, is a longtime executive of the New York Yankees.
"The Angels are committed to championship standards," Eppler said in a statement released by the club. "They are committed to being a perennial contender, and many of the pieces are already in place for that to occur. I look forward to a collaborative effort as we look to enhance and advance every phase of the baseball operations department. This is an organization with a tremendous amount of talent on and off the field, and I am excited to begin the next chapter of Angels baseball."
