The Philadelphia Phillies are expected to name veteran baseball executive Andy MacPhail as club president, according to multiple reports. The 62-year-old MacPhail has been a baseball executive or team official for the past three decades, as president of baseball operations for the Baltimore Orioles (2007 to 2011), president and chief executive officer of the Chicago Cubs (1994 to 2006) and general manager of the Minnesota Twins.
Under MacPhail, the Twins won World Series titles in 1987 and 1991. He also helped the Cubs to two postseason appearances.
