Orioles hired Roger McDowell as pitching coach.

The Orioles also announced that Alan Mills has been promoted from Triple-A Norfolk to join the staff as bullpen coach. McDowell was dismissed by the Braves back in October after 11 seasons with the organization. He'll replace Dave Wallace, who walked away after three seasons on Buck Showalter's staff.

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports that Rick Peterson will not return as the Orioles' director of pitching development.

Peterson has been in that role with the O's since 2012. With pitching coach Dave Wallace also leaving, it'll be a complete overhaul to how the Orioles' develop and coach their hurlers. A change could certainly be a good thing after how badly their starting pitching staff struggled in 2016.

Dave Wallace has resigned as the Orioles' pitching coach.

Wallace is hoping to continue coaching in some capacity, preferably in a role without so much travel. "I reached that point in my life I want to spend more time with the family, but I still have a passion to help young pitchers," the 69-year-old told USA Today's Bob Nightengale on Thursday. Wallace has over 35 years of experience in professional baseball and spent the past three years (2014-2016) as the pitching coach of the O's. The team produced a 19th-ranked 4.22 staff ERA in 2016.

Orioles owner Jerry Angelos said he is not going to trade general manager and vice president Dan Duquette to the Blue Jays.

"There have not been any changes in the status of Dan Duquette," Angelos told Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun. "He is our GM and he is going to remain our GM. (Duquette) is concentrating on his efforts to determine the composition of our team for 2015. That is the answer. Period." There have been reports that the two sides were close to a deal to send Duquette to the Jays to become their CEO, but Angelos said no such negotiations are taking place. Nobody's word is rock solid in this industry, but if the owner says Duquette is staying put, it seems Duquette is staying put.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles and Blue Jays have discussed a compensation package that Baltimore would require for executive VP/GM Dan Duquette to take the CEO job with Toronto.

The two sides aren't close to an agreement, but the Orioles at least appear willing to consider the possibility. Duquette is currently under contract through 2018, but Rosenthal hears that some with Baltimore want him to go. It's an awkward situation, so a quick resolution would probably be the best thing for all parties involved.

The Orioles named Scott Coolbaugh as their hitting coach on Friday.

The 48-year-old spent the 2014 season as the minor league hitting coordinator for the Rangers. While he was just a .215 career hitter in 432 big league at-bats, Coolbaugh is very widely respected around the league and makes for a tremendous addition to the Orioles staff.

The Orioles interviewed minor league hitting coordinator Jeff Manto and one other candidate for their open hitting coach position Monday.

Manto is believed to be the only internal candidate who will be interviewed for the position vacated by the reassignment of Jim Presley. The identity of the outside candidate interviewed Monday is unknown. Manto previously served as a hitting coach with the Pirates and White Sox before joining the Orioles in 2013.

Orioles hitting coach Jim Presley has been reassigned to a different role in the organization.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun writes that the move "revolves around personal issues and not job performance." The O's, who led the major leagues in home runs this past season and finished sixth in total runs scored, are beginning the interview process to replace Presley immediately. He was on the job for four years.

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced Tuesday that Buck Showalter won the 2014 American League Manager of the Year Award.

It's no surprise, as hardly anyone picked the Orioles to win the AL East and they wound up taking the division by 12 games. Showalter received 25 of the 30 first-place votes. Mike Scioscia was the runner-up in the voting, while Ned Yost came in third.

Hardly anyone picked the Orioles to win the AL East, but they wound up taking the division by 12 games. The winner will be announced next Tuesday.
