Dodgers Lose AAA Manager to Anaheim Angels

As the offseason turns, the Dodgers continue to lose bits and pieces from around the organization. Thus far, the major league coaching staff has remained intact, but staff from deeper within the org have been hired away by other teams.

Recently, R&D lead Scott Powers joined the Astros. Minor League hitting coach David Popkins joined the Twins back in October. And now, the Angels have hired away Triple-A coach Bill Haselman.

The Angels have been rebuilding their front office and on-field staff over the last few seasons, starting with the hiring of manager Joe Madden. This offseason, Anaheim added former Yankees third base coach Phil Nevin. Moreover, they are reportedly working on bringing former MLB outfielder Adam Eaton into the mix as a coach.

Haselman, who managed LA’s Single-A affiliate, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes to a Cal League title in 2015, moved up to manage the AAA Oklahoma City Dodgers from 2016-2018. He took on a role as a minor league coordinator in 2019 and 2020 before rejoining the OKC team as the bench coach in 2021.

The 55-year-old also played in parts of 13 seasons at the big league level, spending time with the Red Sox, Mariners, Rangers, and Tigers primarily as a backup catcher.

  1. If you can’t call the Halos the Los Angeles Angels because you are a Dodger fan and have an inferiority complex because yer team was actually stolen from Brooklyn, as opposed to actually starting in Los Angeles, yea know, like the Halos, literally named after the city where they were born, don’t reveal it here where it can easily be identified for what it is. Don’t the so insecure about yer team.
