ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Josh Paul has been named the Los Angeles Angels' bench coach.
Angels general manager Billy Eppler announced the move Tuesday.
Paul spent the past three seasons as the New York Yankees' catching coordinator. Before that, he was a scout and a minor-league manager for the Yankees, where Eppler spent over a decade in the front office.
The 42-year-old Paul was a catcher for the Angels from 2004-05. He played in 321 career big-league games with four franchises from 1999-2007.
Paul replaces Dino Ebel, who will return to his previous job as the Angels' third base coach after four seasons as manager Mike Scioscia's bench coach.
Ebel replaces Ron Roenicke, who left the Angels to become new Boston manager Joey Cora's bench coach.
