Update, 1:50 pm: The Angels want to keep Dipoto as their general manager, reports Morosi. Owner Arte Moreno and president John Carpino are trying to make piece between Dipoto and Scioscia. However, if Dipoto still decides to resign, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick hears that assistant GM Matt Klentak would be given the job.
There has yet to be an official announcement either way from the team.
Initial Story: Los Angeles Angels' general manager Jerry Dipoto is "definitely out" from his position, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports. It is likely he resigned. Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported that the players believe Dipoto is out as GM. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports notes that Dipoto's office is cleaned out, but he could just be making the move "out of emotion."
This move from Dipoto comes as a result of another report from Rosenthal. He reported that the GM and manager Mike Scioscia were not getting along again, even though the two had presumably moved past older tensions from 2012. These tensions, however, appeared to be unrepairable, according to a report from Yahoo's Tim Brown.
The matter on which the two Angels decision makers did not see eye-to-eye on has to do with scouting reports. It looked as if Dipoto felt that Scioscia was not utilizing the front office's reports (such as things like defensive shifts) during the games. However, Scioscia and some Angels players felt that Dipoto did not make as good of a team than in years past. Overall, it just looks like both sides were not happy with what the other side was doing.
Dipoto, 47, has been the Angels' general manager since the beginning of the 2012 season and has enjoyed plenty of success. The team has had two .500 or better seasons in his the three full years he's been there and went to the playoffs last season after winning the AL West for the first time since 2009.
