The Phillies will have many of their usual cast of guest coaches assemble in Clearwater for Spring Training this month, with Larry Bowa, Brad Lidge, Charlie Manuel, Dan Plesac and Mike Schmidt all assisting new manager Gabe Kapler. A new face this spring will be former Phillies outfielder Bobby Abreu, who played with the Phillies from 1998 through the 2005 season.
Abreu played in over 2,400 major league games for the Astros, Phillies, Yankees, Angels, Dodgers and Mets, retiring following the 2014 season. He hit 288-1363-.291/.395/.475 in his career and hit .303 in a Phillies uniform. He also stole 400 bases and was caught stealing just 128 times for a stolen base percentage of 76-percent. With the Phillies, Abreu was twice a National League all-star and won a gold glove in 2005. He also won the All-Star Game Home Run Derby in 2005.
