The Philadelphia Phillies hired Joe Girardi as their next manager. Girardi replaces Gabe Kapler, who was fired after two disappointing seasons.
Girardi began his managerial career with the Marlins in 2006 but was fired after one season. Girardi, 55, managed 10 years with the Yankees from 2008 to 2017, winning a World Series championship in 2009. He had a 910-710 record over that span.
Girardi also interviewed with the New York Mets, who still have an opening, and the Chicago Cubs, who went with David Ross.
Girardi played catcher in the big leagues from 1989 to 2003 and hit. 267. He won the World Series with the Yankees in 1996, 1998 and 1999 and was an All-Star for the Chicago Cubs in 2000.
