The Angels fired GM Billy Eppler on Sunday, moments after the team concluded its fifth consecutive losing season.
The firing comes with one year left on Eppler's deal. The Angels quietly extended Eppler through the 2021 season over the summer, a source confirmed to ESPN. Eppler, who finished his fifth season with the organization after joining in 2015, was on an expiring contract when the year began.
In a statement, Angels president John Carpino said: "The Angels organization would like to thank Billy for his dedication and work ethic over the last five years. We wish him and his family all the best."
