With the Cleveland Indians now eliminated from playoff contention, the Phillies are reportedly turning their attention to one of their coaches.   Pitching coach Mickey Callaway, who has served in that role under manager Terry Francona since 2013, was said to be a hot managerial candidate heading into this offseason.  It appears the Phillies have taken notice.

As a player, Callaway played for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Texas Rangers, and the Anaheim Angels, before spending a few seasons playing in Korea and Japan.  Callaway began coaching in the Indians farm system in 2010 and moved up the levels before being named pitching coach for the 2013 season.
