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.

Perlozzo's probably getting to an age where he's better suited as a Bench coach, but does give the Phillies' some flexibility here.
