Could the Angels hire former Astros manager to coaching staff?

The Los Angeles Angels are considering hiring Bo Porter, the former manager of the Houston Astros, to join their coaching staff.

Porter, who played for the Oakland Athletics and worked in the front office for the Atlanta Braves, is a candidate for a coaching role under the Angels' new manager, Ron Washington.

Porter managed the Astros from 2013-14 during a challenging rebuilding phase, finishing with a record of 110-190.

After being let go by the Astros, Porter took on various roles, including third base coach and special assistant with the Atlanta Braves.

The 51-year-old Porter has also worked as an MLBPA spring training camp manager and as an analyst for MLB Network and MASN.

Porter's potential move to the Angels comes at an interesting time, considering his recent headlines involving Shohei Ohtani.

Ron Washington, the Angels' new manager, has a connection with Porter from their time together with the Oakland Athletics.

Bo Porter's managerial experience, despite the challenges in Houston, could bring valuable insights to the Angels' coaching staff.

The Angels are making strategic moves in their coaching lineup, having already hired Ron Washington from another AL West division rival.
