Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt and former All-Star second baseman Mickey Morandini will be guest instructors during spring training for the Phillies, the team announced.

Manager Charlie Manuel will retain his entire coaching staff: Mick Billmeyer (bullpen/catching), Rich Dubee (pitching), Davey Lopes (first base/outfield), Pete Mackanin (bench), Sam Perlozzo (third base/infield), Milt Thompson (hitting) and bullpen catcher Jesus Tiamo.

The spring training staff features 21 instructors, including Manuel. From the player development staff, it will be coordinators Mike Compton (field), Gorman Heimueller (pitching), Steve Henderson (outfield/baserunning), Doug Mansolino (infield), Sal Rende (hitting) and Ernie Whitt (catching), along with the triple-A staff of Dave Huppert (manager), Greg Gross (hitting) and Rod Nichols (pitching). Gulf Coast manager Roly deArmas and rehab pitching coach Carlos Arroyo round out the spring training staff.

 

Schmidt, 60, returns for his ninth spring as a guest instructor and Morandini, 43, is back for his second year.
