The Phillies on Tuesday named Larry Bowa the bench coach. Pete Mackanin and Steve Henderson will also be back, but Wally Joyner has chosen to pursue other options.
Bowa's return to the Phils will be his fourth stint with the organization. A shortstop from 1970-81 with the Phillies, Bowa also served as third-base coach (1989-96) and manager (2001-04).
Mackanin will return as third-base coach after a one-year hiatus. He previously served as bench coach from 2009-12 under Charlie Manuel. Steve Henderson will resume his duties as hitting coach for a second straight season.
What may come as a surprise is after just one year with the team, Wally Joyner declined to return as assistant hitting coach.
Joyner, a former all-star and .289 career batter who spent 16 seasons in the majors, briefly served as the Padres' hitting coach from 2007-08 before resigning because of a difference in hitting philosophy with the club. Domonic Brown credited his emergence at the plate this season to help from Joyner.
Rod Nichols (bullpen coach) and Juan Samuel (first-base coach) are both still under consideration for a return to the coaching staff in 2014.
The Phillies remain on the search for a pitching coach.
