Yankees Lose Billy Eppler to Anaheim

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim were one of many teams entering the final month of the regular season and were the latest team to finally get their man, that man was Brian Cashman’s assistant general manager Billy Eppler. Eppler, 40-year old, will take over the Angels personnel decisions after Jerry Dipoto resigned earlier this season due to conflicts with management and team manager Mike Scioscia.

Eppler was a finalists for the Angels GM job back in 2011 before Angels owner Arte Moreno hired Dipoto and will finally get the opportunity to run his own team in Los Angeles. Eppler spent 11 seasons inside the Yankees organization spending time as a scout, the assistant director of baseball operations and the assistant GM where he has spent his last four seasons. Eppler is a San Diego native who was long thought to prefer a job on the West Coast near his home town and he finally has it in Los Angeles.
