Manager Scioscia, GM Dipoto return to Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto are returning to the Los Angeles Angels next year after the club’s worst season in a decade.

The Angels announced Tuesday night that hitting coach Jim Eppard and bench coach Rob Picciolo will not return in 2014, but Scioscia and Dipoto say they’ve been retained by owner Arte Moreno.

Eppard became the Angels’ hitting coach early in the 2012 season when Dipoto fired Mickey Hatcher, Scioscia’s longtime assistant.

Picciolo had been Scioscia’s bench coach for three seasons. Scioscia says third base coach Dino Ebel will be promoted to bench coach for next season.

The Angels missed the playoffs for the fourth straight season at 78-84.
