He returned as the Phillies hitting coach in 2019 under manager Gabe Kapler. He also was a senior adviser to the general manager that year.

Overseas, he was a .303 hitter with 189 home runs in his six seasons.

Manuel’s coaching career began in 1983 as a manager in the Minnesota Twins’ farm system.
