Billy Eppler Hires Two From Yankees Front Office
Slow day yesterday, but I did see something creep over the wire that was newsworthy in Yankeeland. Via Sweeny Murti (who still has me blocked on Twitter), Billy Eppler has poached a pair of guys from the Yankee front office/scouting staff and brought them to join him in Anaheim. Steve Martone, who was the Yankees’ manager of pro scouting, will be Eppler’s new assistant GM, and Eric Chavez has been named special assistant to the GM. No word yet on whether Martone will have a special assistant to the assistant GM or if that position will be filled by a former Yankee, but stay tuned.It was only a matter of time until Billy Eppler starting to bring in his own pieces. You have to give Eppler credit, however, for doing his due diligence with Los Angeles Angels management before making these moves. Read our analysis on the Billy Eppler effect on the Angels here. It's hard to see bringing in help from an organization like the Yankees as a bad thing for the Angels.
