Phils manager Joe Girardi already living up to reputation

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — It’s clear when Joe Girardi walks into a room that he’s the man in charge.

There’s a different vibe surrounding the Philadelphia Phillies in spring training thanks to their new manager with the impressive resume. Girardi commands respect without having to demand it. He has a confident swagger that resonates with players because he’s won four World Series as a player and manager.

“He has a really calm, confident demeanor,” All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto said. “When he speaks, everybody listens because he’s so intelligent and what he says makes sense all the time.”

Girardi managed the New York Yankees for 10 years, succeeding Joe Torre after the 2007 season. He led New York to three AL East titles, six postseason appearances and its 27th World Series title, beating the Phillies in six games in 2009.

Girardi exploring ways to keep Phils healthy for long season

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) —

Philadelphia Phillies manager Joe Girardi wants to have a healthy team down the stretch this year and says he will be diligent in making sure his players aren’t overworked early in the season.

“I take it personal when a guy gets hurt,” Girardi said. “I think there is enough talent to win.”

The Phillies dealt with a variety of injuries last year, including left fielder Andrew McCutchen missing the final four months of the season with a torn ACL. Reliever David Robertson missed most of 2019 after Tommy John surgery and is expected to miss a large portion of this season, too.
