Reports: Angels GM Dipoto says he quit

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto says he has resigned, but the team is refusing to confirm his departure.

Dipoto told the Los Angeles Times and the Orange County Register on Wednesday that he has quit after 3 1/2 years with the Angels, but manager Mike Scioscia and Angels spokesman Tim Mead repeatedly declined to acknowledge any changes ahead of a team meeting before their game against the New York Yankees.

Dipoto's mostly successful tenure apparently came to an abrupt end shortly after details of another team meeting were leaked to Fox Sports. Scioscia and Dipoto previously have clashed over philosophical differences during the GM's tenure, and the latest dispute reportedly concerned Dipoto's desire for the Angels to play with more attention to statistical analysis and scouting reports.
