He is the franchise's winningest manager with a 780-636 mark, leading the team to a 2008 World Series championship and five straight division titles.

The Phillies have relieved hitting coach John Mallee of his duties, the club announced today.

Manuel spent eight-plus seasons as the Phillies' manager from 2005-2013. He worked as a scout, a minor-league hitting instructor and most recently an adviser to general manager Matt Klentak.

As for Mallee, he's served as Phillies hitting coach since the start of the 2018 season.

Jim Salisbury of NBCS Philadelphia hinted at a major coaching change coming to the Phillies after a 2-5 west coast trip.

The Phillies' offense has been less-than-stellar in 2019, as it ranks 19th in runs, 24th in batting average and 22nd in OPS, so they are hoping Manuel can come in and help sort things out at the plate.

At the moment, Philadelphia owns a record of 60-58 and is three losses behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the second Wild Card spot. He made his bones in the bigs, however, as a hitting coach, serving in that role for the Cleveland Indians from 1988 to 1989 and again from 1994 to 1999. The Phillies enter Tuesday's game ranked ninth in the NL in runs (557), 10th in hits (991) and on-base percentage (.322), 11th in home runs (149) and 12th in slugging percentage (.417).
