Reports: Angels hiring Callaway as pitching coach

Former New York Mets manager Mickey Callaway will be named the pitching coach for the Los Angeles Angels, multiple outlets reported Saturday.

Callaway, 44, was fired by the Mets at the end of the 2019 season after compiling a 163-161 record with no playoff appearances in two seasons.

Callaway was the pitching coach for the Cleveland Indians for four seasons (2013-17) before landing the Mets' job. The Indians reached the 2016 World Series during his tenure.

He will be reunited with recently hired Angels manager Joe Maddon. Callaway pitched for the Angels in 2002-03 during Maddon's stint as manager Mike Scioscia's bench coach.
