Philadelphia Phillies Hire Charlie Manuel As New Hitting Coach, Fire John Mallee

Charlie Manuel will be back in the Philadelphia Phillies dugout. In a shocking move, the Phillies announced the former World Series-winning manager is the team’s new hitting coach after firing John Mallee. Their offense has underperformed despite the addition of slugger Bryce Harper, All-Star J.T. Realmuto, two-time All-Star Jean Segura and former 2013 MVP Andrew McCutchen, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in June. It reached a boiling point in the four-game series against the San Francisco Giants as the Phillies were one-hit. Heading into Tuesday night’s game against the Chicago Cubs, the Phillies are 19th in runs, 24th in batting average (.245) and 23rd in home runs (149). The Phillies are currently in fourth place in the National League East -nine games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves. The team is also two games out of the final Wild Card spot.
