A baseball source tells CSNPhilly.com’s Jim Salisbury that Bowa is nearing an agreement to become the Phillies’ new bench coach.
This would be Bowa’s fourth go-around with the organization. He played 12 seasons for the Phillies, coached them from 1989-96 before managing the club from 2001-04.
Bowa was traded with Ryne Sandberg in 1982 to the Chicago Cubs, where the two served as double-play partners and Sandberg turned into a Hall-of-Famer.
Would it be a good move to bring back the fiery Bowa?
