The Phillies sent the following press release today:
The Phillies have offered contracts for the 2016 season to four of the six members of their major league coaching staff, the club announced tonight.
Larry Bowa (bench), Steve Henderson (hitting), Bob McClure (pitching) and Juan Samuel (first base) have all been asked to return for the 2016 season. John Mizerock (assistant hitting) and Rod Nichols (bullpen) will not have their contracts renewed.
Additionally, bullpen catchers Bob Stumpo and Jesus Tiamo have also been asked to return for next season.
With Pete Mackanin already on board as the Phillies’ manager for next season, there should be little surprise that the majority of his coaching staff is returning as well.
