Wally Joyner, Juan Samuel returning to Phils staff

Wally Joyner and Juan Samuel are returning as coaches for the Philadelphia Phillies under manager Ryne Sandberg.

Joyner will continue in his role as assistant hitting coach. Joyner, who declined a return at first, will be back for his second season with the Phillies.

Samuel heads into his fourth season with the team and second as first-base coach.

Sandberg, who replaced Charlie Manuel in August, hired former Phillies manager and shortstop Larry Bowa to be his bench coach.

The Phillies are still looking for a pitching coach to replace Rich Dubee.
