Orioles third-base coach DeMarlo Hale has been rumored to be a candidate for the Boston Red Sox managerial job now that Bobby Valentine has been fired. Hale, 51, spent six seasons on former Boston manager Terry Francona's staff, including two years as Francona's bench coach, before joining the Orioles this season. He said he hasn't heard anything from the Red Sox organization regarding the job and one industry source said there hadn't been a formal interview request for Hale yet. Hale said he'd have interest, but it's not something he is considering right now. “I'd have to think about it, no question, but right now my focus is this team, what we've accomplished so far and what is ahead of us,” Hale said.

The Orioles have decided to take advantage of a new rule that allows for the hiring of a seventh coach. Former big league catcher Einar Diaz, who was ticketed to be the field coach at Bowie, will now be an assistant major league coach, helping hitting coach Jim Presley as well as other members of Showalter's staff. “I've had Einar as a player [with the Texas Rangers in 2003],” Showalter said. “Einar is just a solid human being. He'll fit in real well to the clubhouse, pretty seamless.” Showalter said one of the most important things about Diaz is that he's a good batting practice pitcher, something needed with the departure of last year's third-base coach DeMarlo Hale.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was interviewed from the dugout during the TBS broadcast and shared his thoughts on J.J. Hardy being deked by Alex Rodriguez at third base in the third inning of Game 2 of the ALDS on Monday night. Third-base coach DeMarlo Hale was waving Hardy home after a grounder got past Yankees shortsop Derek Jeter, but Hardy stopped when he saw Rodriguez flash his glove at the bag, and he was eventually stranded at third. “DeMarlo [Hale] is one of the finest third base coaches in all of baseball and I've had some really good ones," Showalter told Ernie Johnson, Cal Ripken Jr. and John Smoltz on the broadcast.

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.

Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale will interview for the Boston Red Sox managerial job later this week, an industry source confirmed Monday.  Hale joined Buck Showalter's staff last offseason after the Red Sox fired former manager Terry Francona after Boston failed to make the postseason, a fate that was partially sealed because of the Orioles' win over the Red Sox at Camden Yards on the final day of the regular season in 2011. Before arriving in Baltimore, Hale was the Red Sox bench coach for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Several media outlets, led by the Boston Herald, reported Wednesday that the Boston Red Sox have a two-year deal in place for right-handed slugger Jonny Gomes. Gomes, 31, hit .262 with 18 homers, a .377 on-base percentage and .491 slugging percentage in 99 games for the Oakland A's last season. A designated hitter and outfielder who demolishes left-handed pitching, he looked like he'd be a good fit for the Orioles' vacant DH/unclaimed left field spot. And as Eduardo A. Encina reported last week, the Orioles had legitimate interest in Gomes, but only on a one-year deal.

DeMarlo Hale, who had served as the Orioles' third-base coach this past season, is taking a job as bench coach for the Toronto Blue Jays, an industry source has confirmed. Hale, the only remaining unsigned coach from Orioles manager Buck Showalter's staff heading into Thanskgiving, interviewed for the Toronto job earlier this week. The Orioles had extended an offer for Hale to return to the club as third-base coach, but a bench coaching position is seen as a move up. Hale, who was previously the Red Sox bench coach under former Boston manager Terry Francona, joined Showalter's staff this past season after Francona was not retained following the 2011 season.

Orioles third base coach DeMarlo Hale is interviewing for the Boston Red Sox managerial job today. Hale, 51, has nine years of managerial experience, but none in the majors. And that might hurt his chances, especially considering the favorite is John Farrell, the current Toronto Blue Jays manager and former Red Sox pitching coach. For Farrell to get it, though, the Blue Jays would demand compensation. No such problem with Hale. The Orioles want him to go to Boston. They'd happily pack his bags and buy his ticket to Logan Airport.

There was a little confusion Tuesday night with regard to DeMarlo Hale, the Boston Red Sox bench coach who is expected to head to Baltimore. ESPN Boston reported that he is out in Boston. That will be the case, according to an industry source. And he is expected to join the Orioles as third base coach. That should be announced soon. The holdup is that Hale, who worked under former Boston manager Terry Francona, is still under contract for a year with the Red Sox. So he is negotiating his buyout, the source said.

Recently, it has become en vogue for major league clubs to hire two hitting coaches. The Braves, Cardinals and Padres all employed assistant hitting coaches last season, while the Phillies last month hired former major leaguer Wally Joyner to assist newly hired hitting coach Steve Henderson. Last week, the Dodgers hired John Valentin as assistant hitting coach under new hitting coach Mark McGwire. New Red Sox manager John Farrell has said he's considering hiring two hitting coaches to his yet-to-be-completed staff.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was somewhat astonished by the interest his third base coach vacancy drew. Candidates constantly emerged to replace DeMarlo Hale, who was hired as Toronto's bench coach last month. But when decision time to make a hire came, Showalter stayed within the organization and turned to one of his most trusted coaches. The Orioles announced Thursday they have hired Bobby Dickerson, who has been the organization's minor league infield coordinator for the past three seasons, as their new third base coach.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter was hoping to keep his 2012 coaching staff together for next season. That didn't happen -- third-base coach DeMarlo Hale has left the organization to become the bench coach for John Gibbons in Toronto. That means Showalter will have to find a new third-base/infielders coach. And although it's a move that won't mean much to the casual fan, Showalter has always championed it as an exceptionally important spot. He was thrilled when Hale joined the Orioles last winter and, consequently, expect Showalter to take his time again to find the right fit. Here's a look at six potential candidates to replace Hale, though it is very early in the process.

Orioles third-base coach DeMarlo Hale, one of two coaches the team has yet to resign, has interviewed for the Toronto Blue Jays bench coach job, an industry source has confirmed. Ending a tenuous search for a manager to replace John Farrell, who left to become the Red Sox's new manager, the Blue Jays hired John Gibbons, who managed Toronto from 2004-'08. He was introduced to the media on Tuesday morning.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter had expressed concern that other teams could woo Hale, who also served as the team's infield coach, with the offer of a bench coaching job. Hale was bench coach on new Indians manager Terry Francona's staff in Boston and worked alongside Farrell, formerly the Red Sox pitching coach, under Francona.
