One of new Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson's early duties as infield coach this spring will be helping Chris Davis get ready to take over the everyday job at first base this season and forget a tough 2012 at the position. Last year, Davis' defensive struggles at first led to Mark Reynolds' shift across the infield from third to first, one move that stabilized the Orioles' defense. Reynolds, who struggled at third, flourished defensively at first, while Davis filled in suitably in the outfield because of injuries.

The Orioles didn't need a game-ending three-run homer Wednesday night to complete their second dramatic comeback victory in three games against the Chicago White Sox. A walk-off wild pitch in the early hours of Thursday morning was enough. Looking like they were about to lose the rubber match of their three-game series against the struggling White Sox, the Orioles rallied again for a 5-4 win Wednesday on a game-clinching wild pitch in the 12th inning of a 4-hour, 3-minute marathon that also included a 1-hour, 9-minute rain delay.

Several teams are announcing their coaching staffs for next year, but the Orioles haven't yet sorted out who will handle their pitching in 2014. Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said the organization will “take a hard look at that this week and next week.” Duquette and Orioles manager Buck Showalter would like to have the questions about the pitching and bullpen coaches resolved by the end of the month. The rest of Showalter's staff -- hitting coach Jim Presley, first base coach Wayne Kirby, third base coach Bobby Dickerson and extra coach Einar Diaz -- will return.

The Orioles have hired Jeff Manto -- who played third base for the Orioles in 1995 -- to be the organization's new minor league hitting coordinator, the club announced Tuesday. For the past two seasons, Manto was the hitting coach for the Chicago White Sox.   Manto will replace Mike Boulanger, who will move to a role in the organization's amateur and pro scouting department by his owen choice. Manto, who played parts of nine major league seasons with eight different teams, had his best year in 1995 with the Orioles, hitting .256/.325/.492 with 17 home runs and 37 RBIs in 254 at-bats.

A contingent of Orioles players and staff, including Showalter, visited wounded veterans Tuesday at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda before the team's game against the Washington Nationals. Major League Baseball encourages the visitation when teams play in Washington, and the Orioles try to make it an annual trip. “I challenge everybody to go some time. Some people are given a completely different perspective, some people it … makes you kind of understand the price you pay for everything,” Showalter said.

  Here are the post-game transcripts of what Orioles manager Buck Showalter, Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson had to say about Monday's dust-up after the first inning in which the two managers screamed at each other and had to be separated by the umpires. BUCK SHOWALTER What caused you to come out of the dugout?  “(Girardi) was yelling at the third base coach. Somebody's wearing black and orange, I'm not going to let that happen.

Manager Buck Showalter charged out of the Orioles dugout at the end of the first inning Monday night, shouting angrily at Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Showalter was so hot, in fact, that he had to be restrained by the umpiring crew. It didn't take a very astute lip reader to figure out what Showalter was saying on the video replay, and the first thing out of his mouth cannot be printed here. Then he clearly was saying “That ain't right, Joe…That ain't right.” Before Showalter left the dugout, there appeared to be some angry banter between Girardi and Orioles third base coach Bobby Dickerson that was caught by the camera of the YES Network, leading to some speculation by the Yankee broadcasters that Girardi may have accused Dickerson of stealing signs.

Hardly a day goes by without Orioles manager Buck Showalter being reminded in some way just how young Manny Machado, his prodigious 20-year-old third baseman, is. And Showalter believes that it is a good thing. “I said something the other day about some musician or an ex-player that wasn't that removed [from today], and he had no idea what I was talking about,” Showalter said Wednesday morning. “And I went, 'Wow, OK.' ” Showalter later paused for a moment before asking a room full of reporters to remind him just how young Manny Machado is, as in which year he was born.

Last winter, Brad Tyler played in Venezuela and worked out less than he had in previous off-seasons."I just didn't get in the weight room like I wanted," said Tyler, who plays second base for the Triple-A Rochester Red Wings.So, how come he is flashing more muscle than ever before and leads the Red Wings with 13 home runs and in slugging average?"I think I've matured mentally," Tyler, 26, said. "I came into this season real relaxed, knowing I can play at this level, and I've stopped looking for too many fastballs.

Who really knows whether New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi had a legitimate gripe when he called out Orioles coach Bobby Dickerson for allegedly stealing signs on Monday night, but thanks to Buck Showalter's mad dash onto the field at the end of the first inning, we're all getting a crash course in baseball's dark art. Let's not be naïve. The reason each team has a complex system of signs to call pitches and various other plays is because it is understood that anybody worth two bags of Red Man is looking for an edge and isn't going to go to bed with a guilty conscience for cracking that code.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter's fiery charge out of his dugout following the first inning Monday night -- as he tried to push through two umpires to get at Yankees manager Joe Girardi -- undoubtedly added some fuel to this week's pivotal four-game series. Both teams are playing for their playoff lives this week, but Showalter made it clear his team wasn't going to be bullied on the field or off during the Orioles' 4-2 victory over the Yankees in front of an announced 17,456 at Camden Yards.

PHOENIX - Orioles manager Buck Showalter often shuns the spotlight, so when the Arizona Diamondbacks showed a video tribute to Showalter - who was their first manager and played a large role in the expansion club's growth - he hesitated before tipping his cap as fans applauded. Monday was Showalter's first game back in Arizona since his departure from the Diamondbacks after the 2000 season. Showalter was hired in two years before Arizona began play and managed the Diamondbacks for three seasons.

If there is a lasting image from the Orioles' 5-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, it's pinch-runner Alexi Casilla standing at third base, arms spread wide, palms in the air, mouthing “What happened?” to coach Bobby Dickerson. The answer wasn't what Casilla, the potential tying run, wanted to hear: Boston right fielder Shane Victorino had dashed to his left, caught Ryan Flaherty's liner with little trouble and threw to first to double up Casilla and end the game. In the recent past, “What happened?
