    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia is expected to step down at the end of this season, according to a report by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

    Scioscia has managed the Angels since 2000 and is the longest-tenured manager in the majors. Only five managers in baseball history have managed one team for more consecutive seasons than these 19 by Scioscia: Connie Mack (50 years, Philadelphia Athletics); John McGraw (31 years, New York Giants); Walter Alston (23 years, Brooklyn and LA Dodgers); Bobby Cox (21 years, Atlanta Braves); Tommy Lasorda (21 years, LA Dodgers).

    The 59-year-old Scioscia led the Angels to a World Series title in 2002.

    The Athletic's report was pinned on unidentified major league sources and surfaced late Saturday night following the Angels' 3-0 loss at Cleveland. Scioscia is under contract through the end of 2018. The Angels are 55-57 this year.

    A voicemail left by The Associated Press with a media relations member traveling with the Angels was not immediately returned. 

    Scioscia has 1,625 career wins. The former big league catcher led the Angels to six division titles and seven playoff appearances.
