Report: Angels 'Aggressively' Furloughing Employees Compared to Other MLB Teams

The Los Angeles Angels will furlough 17 area scouts who have evaluated draft-eligible prospects in the United States, Canada and Mexico effective June 1 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

"Their furloughs were part of sweeping reductions in every division of the franchise’s operation except the major-league coaching staff, but club officials declined to reveal the exact percentage of non-playing employees who will be furloughed," Rosenthal wrote.

Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic had reported last Monday that the team planned to furlough the "majority of the club’s player-development staff, minor-league coordinators and minor-league coaches" beginning June 1.
