Pete Mackanin has himself a new contract.

The Philadelphia Phillies announced Thursday they've signed their manager to a two-year deal through 2018 with a club option for 2019.

The 65-year-old Mackanin was first hired by the Phillies in 2009 as a bench coach and later fired in 2012.

He returned as third base coach in 2014 and was then appointed manager in June 2015 after Ryne Sandberg stepped down from the position.

Philadelphia is 13-19 under Mackanin this season and is 121-160 under the skipper overall.

Mackanin owns a 174-213 career big-league record after stints as manager with the Pittsburgh Pirates (2005), Cincinnati Reds (2007), and Phillies.
