The Philadelphia Phillies have agreed to contracts on all six members of their coaching stuff under manager Charlie Manuel.
The staff includes:
Mick Billmeyer (bullpen), Rich Dubee (pitching), Greg Gross (hitting), Pete Mackanin (bench), Sam Perlozzo (first base) and Juan Samuel (third base), along with bullpen catcher Jesus Tiamo, will resume their respective positions.
"I couldn't be happier to have the whole staff back for another season. Their dedication and work ethic speak for themselves and they were a huge part of our 102 wins."
Pete Mackanin was rumored to sign elsewhere as a possible manager, but the opportunity never arose. Mick Billmeyer is the longest-tenured member of the coaching staff, joining the Phillies back in 2004 when Citizens Bank Park opened.
