Wathan named 3B coach

Dusty Wathan was named third base coach for the Phillies on Friday as manager Gabe Kapler starts to build his staff.

Wathan guided the IronPigs to a playoff appearance in 2017 and managed many of the Phillies players in the minor leagues between stops in Reading and Lehigh Valley.

John Mallee comes over from the Cubs to be the new hitting coach replacing Matt Stairs, who went to the Padres.

Assistant pitching coach Rick Kranitz will return in 2018 in an unspecified position.
