While introducing Dave Wallace and Dom Chiti to Camden Yards this offseason, Orioles manager Buck Showalter pointed out the bronze statues of the team's six Hall of Famers beyond the left-center-field fence. “You know, if you two guys figure out this pitching here,” Showalter joked, “there will probably be a statue out there of you two guys.” And after the strides the pitching staff has made under Wallace, the pitching coach, and Chiti, the bullpen coach, in their first year working with the Orioles, Showalter recently joked that he's going to have to make good on his promise and give the duo miniature statues of themselves.

Considered an experienced teacher of young pitchers, Dave Wallace said it was difficult to leave the Atlanta Braves organization and its impressive stable of young arms. But the allure of again becoming a major league pitching coach, and for a playoff contender, was too enticing. “It's been a tough couple days, I want to tell you. It is a good situation over there [in Atlanta], and what they have going on with their young staff is great,” said Wallace, who was named the Orioles' new pitching coach Tuesday.

CHICAGO -- Struggling Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was sent to the bullpen Tuesday, bumping him from a crowded starting rotation in a move that seemed destined to occur since his last rocky outing over the weekend in Cleveland. Before Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, Orioles mananger Buck Showalter announced his rotation through Monday, and Jimenez wasn't among the starters. He will be available out of the bullpen starting Wednesday. Showalter didn't rule out the possibility of using Jimenez as a spot starter, but at this point Jimenez seems destined for mop-up duty out of the bullpen.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace watched intently from behind the mound as Ubaldo Jimenez threw his first bullpen session in an Orioles uniform Thursday. It was the first mound session Jimenez has thrown in a while - Wallace said he's thrown off flat ground - but Wallace isn't concerned that Jimenez is behind. “I think it's early enough that he can catch up,” Wallace said. “He threw a light side today and felt pretty good. … If he's behind a few days it's not a big issue right now. You look at him, he's long he's lean and he's been healthy of the course of his career, so we'll talk to him and get his feel for how he's gone through spring training and what works for him and go from there.

I have to admit that I was a bit surprised when the Orioles named Dave Wallace their new pitching coach Tuesday. And it's not because Wallace isn't exceptionally qualified - he is. He has held the position for four other organizations and was part of a World Series-champion staff in Boston in 2004 when he was the Red Sox pitching coach. And it's not because he's 66. Orioles manager Buck Showalter, 57, had a great line last night about age. “Heck, I'm an old you-know-what,” Showalter said.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When the Orioles first contacted Dave Wallace in October about their pitching coach vacancy, the 66-year-old baseball veteran took pause. Wallace already had a nice job as the minor league pitching coordinator for the Atlanta Braves. He was fulfilling his passion of developing young pitchers. He didn't like to leave a job unfinished, either, and he felt there was still work to do in Atlanta. There was nothing left to prove. As a major league pitching coach for four organizations, he had guided staffs to two pennants and won the World Series with the 2004 Boston Red Sox. After more than four decades in professional baseball, he'd been at every rung of the organizational ladder, from player to minor league coach to front-office official.

I thought one of the more intriguing stories heading into this spring was what the Orioles would do with lefty Zach Britton, who is out of minor league options. I'm thinking the intrigue is over now. Britton was supposed to battle for a spot in the starting rotation. Orioles manager Buck Showalter still isn't officially ruling him out for that role at this point. But when the club signed Ubaldo Jimenez, Britton's battle for the rotation was basically over. Britton said earlier this spring he talked with new pitching coach Dave Wallace and bullpen coach Dom Chiti about a program that would ready him for the bullpen.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman continues to show that he has grown from the flame-throwing pitcher he was in his previous major league stints to a much more polished starter who can use all his pitches to limit damage. Gausman, 23, survived a bases-loaded jam with no outs in the first inning Wednesday, carefully dissecting Tampa Bay Rays hitters and making sure he didn't give them anything to hit that could have led to a big inning. He kept the ball low in the zone, using his split-finger changeup to strike out both James Loney and Ben Zobrist for the first two outs before getting an inning-ending flyout.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- With six starters in the rotation, as well as Thursday's scheduled day off, right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez was able to have an extra work day before his next start Friday against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Jimenez has struggled to maintain consistency this season, going 2-8 with a 4.86 ERA in 14 starts, but he has pitched better with extra time between starts. In two starts with six days' rest this year, Jimenez has a 2.13 ERA, compared to a 5.40 ERA in his other 12 starts.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, on the disabled list with a left oblique strain, did some light exercises - including work with a resistance band -- before this afternoon's game with strength coach Joe Hogarty. Manager Buck Showalter is pleased with his quick progress. “He's doing some things a little earlier that some guys do with that injury,” Showalter said. “That's kind of good to see. He's been in the pool doing some movement.” Left-hander Johan Santana's first extended spring training outing scheduled for today in Sarasota, Fla., was rained out. His two-inning outing has now been rescheduled for Monday, which will allow Showalter to attend because the team will be off and already in Tampa for a series against the Rays.

BOSTON - Since his last start a week ago, Orioles right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez has made several visits to the team's video room, trying to figure out why he's struggled in his first three starts as an Oriole. A day after allowing five runs on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays last Sunday, Jimenez broke down video of his performance with Orioles pitching coach Dave Wallace and bullpen coach Dom Chiti. Leading up to his start tonight against the Boston Red Sox, they've continued to examine his delivery.

SARASOTA, Fla. - If there is one thing you need to know about reliever Tommy Hunter, it is that he is the interpersonal opposite of the guy the Orioles hope he replaces in the critical closer role. Jim Johnson, who last year became the first American League reliever with 50 or more saves in back-to-back seasons, remained all business, all the time. Whether he was warming up for a big save situation, going about his duties as the clubhouse union representative or putting together the club's annual spring training charity golf tournament, there was not a lot of nonsense.

OK, here's what we know about the Orioles' offseason so far. It hasn't been pretty. I mean, really not pretty. The most significant addition so far has probably been pitching coach Dave Wallace, but the front office has not added a pitcher to a rotation that Wallace needs to improve for this club to have a fighter's chance in 2014. Many of the top free agents are off the board. Spring training is looming and this club has taken a step backward in talent from the 85-win version of 2013.

SARASOTA, FLA. - Evan Meek's journey from Rule 5 pick, to All-Star reliever, to nonroster spring training invitee has taken its share of wild twists and turns, but the Orioles hope that they've snagged the 30-year-old at just the right time. "A lot of this game is timing, and a lot of this game is the right fit," Meek said. "The comeback trail is a tough one. It was a long time and a tough road back just to get back to the point where I am now. " Earlier this month, the comeback trail led him to Baltimore, where he had a tryout in front of new pitching coach Dave Wallace and new bullpen coach Dom Chiti during the weekend of FanFest, a session that led to a minor league deal with an invitation to major league camp.
