The Phillies are expected to undergo wholesale changes this offseason as they try to assemble a new group for 2014 with the hopes of returning to the Postseason. That started immediately following the final game of the season.

Within 24 hours of the season’s conclusion, the Phillies announced that they would not be offering a new contract to pitching coach Rich Dubee.

Dubee spent nine seasons with the Phillies, most of them under Charlie Manuel. Dubee handled pitching staffs that featured the likes of Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, Pedro Martinez, Brad Lidge, Jonathan Papelbon, Tom Gordon, Brett Myers and more.

Dubee was also a member of the 2008 World Series championship coaching staff.

The Phillies have committed to Ryne Sandberg as manager of the 2014 team. His current coaching staff consists of Juan Samuel, Steve Henderson, Wally Joyner, Mick Billmeyer, Rod Nichols and Jesus Tiamo.

Much more to come in this busy offseason for the Phillies.
