The Phillies have hired Bryan Price as pitching coach for the 2020 major league coaching staff, the club announced Thursday.
Price, 57, has served as manager of the Cincinnati Reds for parts of five seasons (2014-18). Prior to his managerial stint with the Reds, he was the club’s pitching coach from 2010-2013. In 2013, Cincinnati’s pitching staff ranked first in MLB in WHIP (1.17) and fourth in ERA (3.38) while also leading the National League in strikeouts (1,296). Under Price’s tutelage as pitching coach, the Reds made the postseason three times (2010, 2012-13) in four seasons and right-hander Homer Bailey tossed two no-hitters.
Price has also served as pitching coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Seattle Mariners.
