PHILADELPHIA -- Charlie Manuel has returned to the Philadelphia Phillies as a senior adviser to general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday.

Manuel led the Phillies to the 2008 World Series title, five division championships and two NL pennants from 2005-13. His 780 victories are more than any manager in franchise history.

The 70-year-old Manuel will work with minor league hitters, scout at the major and minor levels and serve as a consultant for the baseball operations staff. Before becoming the team's manager, Manuel , spent two years working for the Phillies as a special assistant to then-GM Ed Wade.

"Charlie obviously brings a wealth of knowledge and is someone who had an historic impact on not just our organization, but on all Phillies fans," Amaro says. "We couldn't be happier to have him back in the fold with us and sharing his expertise and insight throughout the organization."

The Phillies also reached a one-year deal with outfielder John Mayberry Jr. for $1,587,500. They exchanged salary arbitration figures with outfielder Ben Revere, offering $1.4 million while he sought $2,425,000, and reliever Antonio Bastardo, who asked for $2.5 million to the team's $1,675,000.
