Phillies prez Dombrowski gets 3-year extension
The Phillies signed president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski to a three-year contract extension on Tuesday.
With the extension, Dombrowski is signed through the 2027 season.
The Phillies advanced to the World Series this past season, Dombrowski’s second with the franchise. The postseason appearance ended a 10-year drought for the Phillies, who qualified for a wild-card spot with an 87-75 record and enjoyed a surprising run to the World Series before falling to the Astros in six games.
Dombrowski, 66, has led four different franchises (Phillies, Red Sox, Tigers, Marlins) to World Series appearances and helped to build championship teams for the Florida Marlins (1997) and Red Sox (2018) as those teams’ general manager.
“We are extremely pleased that Dave has agreed to continue to lead our baseball operations department through the 2027 season,” Phillies owner John Middleton said in a statement. “His astute knowledge of the game and keen eye for talent set us on a path to win the National League pennant. I firmly believe that under his stewardship, we will reach our ultimate goal.”
Dombrowski is the first president of baseball operations in the history of the Phillies, joining the franchise in that role in December of 2020.
