Phillies To Hire Kevin Long As Hitting Coach 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Oct 12, 2021 12:48 pm

The Philadelphia Phillies continue to overhaul their coaching staff after a disappointing season.

According to reports, the Phillies are hiring Kevin Long as hitting coach.

Long has connections to Joe Girardi and Bryce Harper. He was on Girardi\'s staff with the New York Yankees for years and also worked with Harper while both were with the Washington Nationals.

The Phillies as a unit ranked 13th in the Major Leagues in runs scored as well as 20th in wRC+.
