The California Angels have decided not to retain Cookie Rojas as manager next season and already have compiled a list of candidates to replace him, it was reported Sunday night.

"Despite the Angels' recent successes, sources tell us that Cookie Rojas will not be back as Angels manager next year," Fred Roggin of KNBC-TV reported.Roggin said that, although Rojas is well-liked by both the Angel players and the front-office personnel, "The bottom line here is he simply does not have enough managerial experience."
