The Los Angeles Angels are expected to hire Joe Maddon as their manager in the next day or two, sources told Scott Miller of Bleacher Report.

"It's a fait accompli, isn't it?" one source apparently said.

Angels owner Arte Moreno wants to hire the ex-Chicago Cubs skipper after an interview went "very well" on Monday, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman.

It was also reported earlier this week that Maddon hoped to land with the Angels, who fired former skipper Brad Ausmus on Sept. 30.
