The Philadelphia Phillies will not renew the contract of pitching coach Rich Dubee, the team announced. He technically was not fired — his contract is up and the team simply isn’t bringing him back.
“Rich was a big part of a wonderful era here and in his nine years he served our organization very well,” GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said in a statement. “We believe it is time for change as we move forward. We thank Rich for his professionalism and contribution to the Phillies.”
