The Los Angeles Angels agreed to a one-year contract with manager Phil Nevin for the 2023 season, the team announced.

Nevin was emotional while discussing his new deal with reporters on Wednesday:

Nevin was named Angels interim manager after the club fired Joe Maddon in June. The former big-leaguer was suspended 10 games later that month for his role in a benches-clearing brawl between the Angels and Seattle Mariners.

Entering Wednesday, the 51-year-old Nevin owned a 46-59 record as the team's skipper.

The Angels lost 14 of their first 16 games to begin July but also showed improvement under Nevin. They posted a combined 28-27 record in August and September.

"Phil's been doing a great job," Angels outfielder Mike Trout said on Sunday, according to The Orange County Register's Jeff Fletcher. "He takes care of the players. He's doing a good job with managing. He's fun to play for."
