Most of the Phillies' Coaching Staff to Remain Intact
Phillies press release:
PHILLIES ANNOUNCE COACHING STAFF CHANGES
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.
Firing Rob Thomson was kind of like giving Socialism a try. Popular in some remote corners of Twitter, but zero chance of actually happening.
