MLB Winter Meetings: Phillies content without making a splash, Rob Thomson didn’t watch the World Series, and MLB Rule 5 Draft update
MLB Winter Meetings are underway in Nashville, Tennessee and I have a few updates for…
The Philadelphia Phillies announced yesterday that two member of their coaching staff will not return for the 2024 season.
Bullpen coach Dave Lundquist and assistant hitting coach Jason Camilli are on their way out of Philadelphia while the remainder of the major league coaching staff will return for next season.
Lundquist, who joined the major league staff in 2019 as an assistant pitching coach, spent 11 years as a coach on the Phillies’ player development staff from 2008-18. As for Camilli, he was named the assistant hitting coach at the start of the 2022 season.
The Phillies announced today that bullpen coach Dave Lundquist and assistant hitting coach Jason Camilli will not return to the major league staff for the 2024 season. The remainder of the major league coaching staff will return for next season.
Lundquist, 50, was named bullpen coach for the 2021 season and first joined the Phillies’ major league staff in 2019 as assistant pitching coach. A former pitcher, Lundquist spent 11 years as a coach on the Phillies’ player development staff from 2008-18. He began his coaching career in the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league system (2005-07).
Camilli, 48, was named assistant hitting coach for the 2022 season. Before joining the Phillies organization, the former infielder spent time in the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals (2004-08), Arizona Diamondbacks (2012-20) and Cincinnati Reds (2021) minor league systems as a hitting coach.
Really nothing major here. The Phillies weren’t going to make any drastic moves to their staff after a World Series appearance in 2022 and falling just one win away from a second-consecutive National League Pennant in 2023.
