Taylor a Rover

 

Former Phillies coach Tony Taylor will be a roving infield instructor in the team's minor-league chain, it was announced yesterday.

 

Howie Bedell, the club's director of minor leagues, also said that Scranton's Paul Carey will manage the Bend, Ore., team in the Northwest Rookie League.

 

"I offered Tony the Bend job and the instructor's position." said Bedell. "I had openings for both and gave Tony the option. We talked several times and Tony has notified me he'd prefer the instructor's position."

 

 

As a roving instructor, Taylor will work with the Phillies young infielders from the Triple-A level down to the two rookie teams. Hell also join Dallas Green's staff for spring training with the major league club until March IS when ISO minor league players begin their training in Clearwater.
