The quashing of front office rumors continues as Los Angeles Angels' owner Arte Moreno has stated that manager Mike Scioscia will return to the club in 2013, reports Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com:

"Regardless of what happens the next 11 games, Mike Scioscia will 100 percent return," Angels owner Arte Moreno said...

"I have told him. He wants to come back, I want him to come back. He's been the manager of the Angels for 13 years. He will be the manager of the Angels for a 14th year. Period."

Moreno's straightforward comments come following a Friday article from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that speculated Mike Scioscia and new general manager Jerry Dipoto did not get along, and that a managerial change could be in the works. Bob Nightengale of USA Today took the rumor a step further, stating that Scioscia would be the "scapegoat" for the 2013 season.

Moreno also iterated that first-year general manager Jerry Dipoto would return to the club as well.
