The LA Angels are slowly but surely filling their coaching staff for 2019, but three key spots are still yet to be filled. 1st and 3rd base coaches need to be hired as well as the bench coach role.

Here are some names that the LA Angels should consider to fill their coaching vacancies.  This is assuming all of the old coaching staff will not be returning.  Mike Scioscia always seemed to have a pretty good staff during his tenure as evidenced by how many of his former coaches were selected to manage teams through the years, Joe Maddon, Ron Roenicke, and Bud Black.  Dino Ebel may get the chance as well in the not too distant future as well.

Even though it seems as if the Angels are trying to make a break from coaches who worked for Iron Mike, there are a few of his former players who I feel would be a really good fit to round out Brad Ausmus’ coaching staff in 2019.  Here is some of the people  who could be nice additions to the Angel coaching staff.
