Angels Extend Mike Scioscia Through 2014
Scioscia's current deal, which is believed to pay him about $1.75 million annually, ran through 2009 and included a club option for 2010. The 50-year-old former Dodgers catcher signed that contract more than a year before his previous deal expired.
"The job he's done in nine years here has been tremendous, not only at the major-league level but in his minor-league development philosophy," said Reagins, who began negotiations with Scioscia on the new deal last September.
"This is an acknowledgment of the work he's put forth. You look around the game, and there are not many ahead of him. We like stability, knowing that Mike is going to be here for a long time."
