4 Coaches Phillies Could Lose to Giants, Gabe Kapler
Pedro Guerrero, Assistant Hitting Coach
Pedro Guerrero was named Phillies assistant hitting coach in November 2017, and prior, he spent two seasons as bench coach for Ogden Raptors, the rookie-level affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Similar to Paco Figueroa, Guerrero worked with Gabe Kapler in that organization, who at the time was their director of player development.
Guerrero played eight seasons in the Dodgers’ minor-league system from 2006 to 2013; the former infielder was originally signed as an amateur free agent in July 2006.
Given Joe Girardi has many years of playing and coaching experience, even if one, or all four of these coaches leave for San Francisco, the 2009 World Series-winning manager would have no trouble finding a replacement.
Time will tell whom, if any, choose to re-join Kapler in the National League West.
