PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Pitchers Hector Neris, Zach Eflin, David Hale and Seranthony Dominguez agreed to one-year contracts with the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday along with catcher Andrew Knapp.
A person familiar with the Philadelphia Phillies' finances says the team lost $145 million during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season played without fans. The Phillies are searching for a general manager to replace Matt Klentak and face important decisions regarding catcher J.T. Realmuto and shortstop Didi Gregorius. Both players are free agents, and Phillies managing partner John Middleton said last month the league's economic climate will impact the team's ability to spend money in the offseason.
Bob Miller, a right-hander for the Philadelphia Phillies' 1950 ''Whiz Kids'' National League pennant winner who went on to coach alma mater Detroit Mercy for 36 years, died Saturday. Miller's family told Detroit Mercy the funeral will be limited to family, with a celebration of life to be held later. Miller pitched two seasons for the Titans in 1947-48 before signing with Philadelphia.
