Rick Adair, who previously took a leave of absence as Orioles pitching coach in August due to the health of his father, will not return to the job next season.
Adair’s father passed away in September and Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles will interview candidates to replace Adair with the goal of having a decision made by the end of the month. Bullpen coach Bill Castro, who filled in for Adair as interim pitching coach, will get an interview.
Buck Showalter has already gone through four different pitching coaches in his three-and-a-half seasons as Orioles manager and Adair originally became the pitching coach when he was promoted from bullpen coach. He had one year remaining on his contract.
