PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt is dealing with an undisclosed health issue and will not be a guest instructor for the Philadelphia Phillies at spring training this year.

Schmidt still plans to visit camp in the middle of March, the team says in a statement. However, the former third baseman won’t serve as an instructor for the first time in more than a decade so he can “remain near his doctors.”

The team says Schmidt also plans to visit Philadelphia throughout the summer.

The Phillies announced Wednesday that recently retired two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay, former closer Brad Lidge, Dave Hollins, Gary Matthews and Larry Anderson will be guest instructors this spring.
