PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Phillies have added Pedro Guerrero as assistant hitting coach.
The 28-year-old Guerrero was a bench coach the past two seasons for the Ogden Raptors, the rookie-level affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers. A former infielder, Guerrero played in the Dodgers' minor league system between 2006-13.
New manager Gabe Kapler's coaching staff already includes hitting coach John Mallee, third-base coach Dusty Wathan and bullpen coach Jim Gott. Rick Kranitz will either be the pitching coach or the assistant.
