As we learned earlier, the Phillies will announce some major organizational changes shortly, at 2:30 p.m.  But, not everything will change in one fell swoop.  While Andy MacPhail is expected to be introduced as club president, the rest might not change for a while, including the general manager's position held by Ruben Amaro Jr.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that Amaro is safe… for now:

Crasnick likened the situation to last season in Arizona.  When Tony La Russa took over baseball operations, Kevin Towers stayed on the job until September, before being replaced by Dave Stewart.

Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports that Pete Mackanin will remain as manager, too, but at season's end there could be a full search.

Overall, Crasnick is happy with the appointment of MacPhail:

The MacPhail era begins at 2:30 today.  Stay tuned.
