PHILADELPHIA - Ryan Sandberg has resigned as Phillies manager.
The Phillies currently own MLB's worst record at 26-48, a dismal mark which followed a 73-89 campaign and last-place finish in the National League East under Sandberg a year ago.
Third base coach Pete Mackanin will take over Sandberg's duties on an interim basis.
Sandberg finished with a 119-159 overall record since taking over for Charlie Manuel on August 16, 2013. The Hall of Fame Player was named the team's permanent manager on September 22 of that year.
