Not much is known at this time, like years and money. The Phillies have long been linked to Schwarber as the Phillies new hitting coach Kevin Long has a strong relationship with the former Cub.
Schwarber is kind of a boom bust player. When he connects, he is hitting bombs. Last season he hit .266/.374/.544 in what was a career year for Schwarber. He hit 32 home runs between the Nationals and the Red Sox.
According to The Athletic’s Jayson Stark it is a 4 year deal for just under $20 million a year
