According to Jon Heyman, Yankees director of pro scouting Billy Eppler has been called for a second interview for the Angels GM opening. Amateur scouting director Damon Oppenheimer was not called back.
Eppler spent today in Tampa going through the Yankees organizational meetings. He declined to comment when The Associated Press asked about the Angels job.
The Angels are still going through some first-round interviews, and reports indicate that the Rays Andrew Friedman is their top choice, but it’s unclear whether he’s legitimately willing to leave Tampa Bay.
Neither Eppler nor Oppenheimer has been closely connected to the Orioles GM search, but that interview process is on-going.
