Joining Ryno in Philly is Rod Nichols who was named the Phillies' new bullpen coach. Nichols was the IronPigs' pitching coach since Day 1 of the franchise. Despite the lack of success over the first couple of years, the Pigs' pitching staff was pretty consistent. Over five seasons, the staff's ERA was 3.90 ERA under Nichols.
We weren't sure last Fall, but now we know for sure that come Springtime we will see a new manager, the third in IronPigs history, in the third base dugout.
