MLB.com @ToddZolecki

PHILADELPHIA -- Scott Franzke will have only two partners in the Phillies' radio broadcast booth in 2019.

The Phillies announced Thursday that they have expanded Kevin Frandsen's role as an analyst. Frandsen shared road duties last season with Kevin Stocker and Kevin Jordan. The Phillies said Frandsen will work 81 games alongside Franzke. Larry Andersen will work the other 81 games, presumably most, if not all, at home.

"Kevin demonstrated during the 2018 season that he brings the perfect blend of enthusiasm and knowledge for our listeners," Phillies executive vice president David Buck said in a statement. "In addition, he has a great rapport with Scott Franzke. We look forward to his continued contributions in 2019 and beyond."

"My family and I are beyond excited that the Phillies chose me to be part of a team with Scott and Larry," Frandsen said in a statement. "I have such an admiration for them both, and to have the opportunity to continue to broadcast Phillies games is very special."

Frandsen played in 174 games for the Phillies after being signed by the club in March 2011, batting .280 with a .333 on-base percentage. He spent parts of nine seasons in the big leagues with the Giants (2006-09 and 2015), Angels (2010), Phillies (2012-13) and Nationals (2014).

Phillies radio broadcasts can be heard on SportsRadio 94WIP and the Phillies Radio Network.
