Perlozzo to Phillies
From the Associated Press:
Former Baltimore Orioles manager Sam Perlozzo joined the Philadelphia Phillies' coaching staff on Thursday.
Perlozzo wasn't immediately assigned a specific position. The World Series champion Phillies are seeking a third-base coach and bench coach for manager Charlie Manuel.
Steve Smith wasn't retained as third-base coach and Jimy Williams chose not to return as bench coach.
Perlozzo, who will handle infield instruction, spent last season as Seattle's third-base coach after 12 years with Baltimore as third-base coach (1996-2000), bench coach (2001-2005) and manager (2005-07).
Perlozzo also coached third base for the Mariners (1993-95), Cincinnati (1990-92) and the New York Mets (1987-89).
"I've known Sammy for a long time and I couldn't be happier to add someone with his experience to our coaching staff," Manuel said.
