Scioscia said he hopes Eppard will stay with the Angels organization in some capacity.
Dipoto and Scioscia deflected questions about whether Moreno has issued any ultimatums about their performance next season with the Angels, who haven't been in the postseason since reaching the ALCS in 2009. Dipoto is headed for the Angels' organizational meetings in Tempe, Ariz., this week as he works on a plan to get the team back in contention.
"Arte is as frustrated as we are with where we were and where we ended up, and where we've been," Scioscia said. "He's frustrated, but very supportive and understanding that he has confidence in us that we're going to turn it around and get to reach our goal."
