He’s been considered for several openings over the last few years and has made it well known that he’d like to be a skipper again. Wash showed interest in the Astros’ gig and has now been named a candidate for the Angels opening.
Angels mànager candidates: Buck Showalter, Ron Washington, Gary DiSarcina, Benji Gil, Ray Montgomery, maybe 1 or 2 more

There might not be a more beloved non-player by Braves Country than Wash. He initially joined the club in 2017 and was instrumental in the club’s six straight division titles and 2021 World Series.
Washington last served as a manager for the Texas Rangers from 2007-2014, in which he led the club to back-to-back World Series in 2010 and 2011. He left for personal reasons, though.
The Braves third base coach has a resumé that few can compare to; he’s very deserving. At 71 years old, Wash is no spring chicken. Hopefully, he gets another shot, but I wouldn’t be too mad if he ended up staying in Atlanta.
