Phillies: 24 Departed Players from 2019 Major League Roster
February is here, which means the new-look 2020 Phillies, without at least two dozen players from last year’s roster, will soon report to spring training.
At least two dozen members of the 2019 Philadelphia Phillies roster will not report to Clearwater, Florida, for spring training this month as part of the team.
Of those players, one has signed with a team overseas in Korea, three have reunited with manager Gabe Kapler with the San Francisco Giants, and nine currently remain free agents with just days until pitchers and catchers.

Clearly, new manager Joe Girardi and general manager Matt Klentak have overhauled the 2020 Phillies roster to include even more All-Star-caliber players, such as Didi Gregorius and Zack Wheeler, to complement Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto, and Aaron Nola, among others.
Under Girardi, the new-look Phillies will be led by new coaches Joe Dillon as hitting coach, Bryan Price as pitching coach, Bob Meacham as assistant coach, Juan Castro as infield coach, and Greg Brodzinski as bullpen catcher/catching coach, among the other coaches who are returning for another season, including bench coach Rob Thomson.
