Eric Chavez: The Favorite

By Grant Avise (@WestCoastBias87)

Eric Chavez isn’t my personal favorite choice to take over for Mike Scioscia, but he seems to be the favorite choice of the people who make those choices. The 6 time Gold Glove Award winner and 2002 Silver Slugger Award winner would seem be the front-runner to be the Halo’s new skipper. Chavez was hired in 2015 to be a special assistant to General Manager Brian Cashman with the Yankees to the same role under Billy Eppler when he took the GM job for the Angels in the same year after he departed New York for Anaheim.

Chavez left the front office on August 5th, 2018 to take over as manager for the Angels AAA affiliate, Salt Lake City Bees. Chavez who has no coaching experience aside from his month and a half as manager, played 17 seasons in the Majors but more importantly knows how to work with Eppler and what he is looking for in a manager. A source within the Angels organization told Halo Hangout that Chavez as manager seemed to be “all but done” after he unexpectedly took over in Salt Lake.

Eppler has said that he plans to interview more outside candidates than inside. No matter who takes the reigns for the Angels, they are going to have some big shoes to fill in Anaheim.
