PHILLIES MAKE A CHANGE AT PITCHING COACH

Ryan Sandberg might be returning as the Phillies manager, but his staff won’t be the same. Pitching coach Rich Dubee won’t have his contract renewed for next season. Dubee’s nine years as pitching coach was the longest service time at that position for the Phillies in the last 35 years and tied for the most in club history with Cy Perkins (1946-54) and Ray Rippelmeyer (1970-78). The Phillies will have announcements regarding the remainder of the coaching staff at a later date.
