Phil Nevin will return to manage the Los Angeles Angels without an interim title in 2023 – for at least one season.
The team announced Wednesday that it has signed a one-year deal to bring back Nevin, who was named interim manager on June 7. He replaced the fired Joe Maddon. Nevin began the 2022 season as the team’s third base coach.
Nevin led the Angels to a 46-59 record entering Wednesday’s season finale. The Angels were 27-29 when Maddon was fired.
The club did not publish financial terms.
Nevin, 51, is in his first season with the Angels. He previously served as third base coach with the San Francisco Giants (2017) and New York Yankees (2018-21).
During Nevin’s playing days, he starred at Cal State Fullerton and was the first overall pick in the 1992 draft by the Houston Astros. He played for seven different major league clubs, including 75 games with the Angels in 1998, and ranks third in San Diego Padres history with 156 home runs.
