The Phillies getting desperate with Charlie Manuel return

The Phillies have fired hitting coach John Mallee and replaced him with former manager Charlie Manuel, as Todd Zolecki of MLB.com first reported. He takes over for John Mallee, who was sacked on Tuesday.

Manuel, now age 75, managed the Phillies for parts of nine seasons from 2005 to 2013, and over that span the team won five division titles, two pennants, and one World Series. He worked as a scout, a minor-league hitting instructor and most recently an adviser to general manager Matt Klentak.

Jim Salisbury of NBCS Philadelphia hinted at a major coaching change coming to the Phillies after a 2-5 west coast trip. Bernstein called it a "power move" by Maddon given Phillies manager Gabe Kapler's shaky status. The Phillies are 140-140 under Kapler, who is in his second season. They led the division by three games at the end of May.

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.

The Phillies, after going all-in with their $330 million Bryce Harper signing this offseason, are 19th in baseball in runs scored and 22nd in OPS.

The team now ranks 24th in the majors in batting average (.245), 23rd in home runs (149) and 22nd in slugging percentage (.738).

Since the All-Star break, the offense has been particularly bad. Entering Tuesday, it ranked 27th in runs, 27th in batting average, 26th in OPS, and 28th extra-base hits.
