DETROIT - Orioles bench coach John Russell is expected to be interviewed for the Minnesota Twins' managerial position. Russell, who has been the Orioles' bench coach since 2011, has previous managing experience. He managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2008 to 2010, compiling a 186-299 record over those three seasons. All of manager Buck Showalter's coaches, including Russell, are currently under contract for next season, so the Orioles would need to give permission to interview Russell.

It was a human moment that wasn't revealed in the box score of the Orioles' 5-3 road split-squad loss to the Phillies in Clearwater -- a father finally getting to coach his son in a sport to which they have both dedicated their careers. Orioles bench coach John Russell, who managed the team's road split-squad team with manager Buck Showalter back in Sarasota on Saturday afternoon, had never had the opportunity to coach his son, Steel, before Sunday's game.  Steel Russell, a left-handed hitting catcher whom the Orioles drafted in the 32 nd round last season out of Midland Junior College in Texas, jumped at the chance to get on the team's travel roster to Clearwater for Sunday's game.

HOUSTON -- Catcher Matt Wieters' second light throwing session was successful, Orioles manager Buck Showalter said. It was much like his first session on Friday, when he made 25 throws from about 75 feet while playing catch with bench coach John Russell. The Orioles are optimistic that Wieters, who is on the disabled list with right elbow discomfort, can return this season and avoid surgery, but Showalter said, even in the best-case scenario, he wouldn't expect Wieters to return within the next two weeks.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Because manager Buck Showalter was in Texas on Saturday to witness his daughter's graduation from law school, bench coach John Russell took over the team for a day. Russell said he spoke with Showalter at length Friday night about the lineup and game plan, and he then talked to him on the phone Saturday afternoon after Showalter's plane landed in Texas. “It's not a whole lot different of a day for me, just preparing and making sure everything is ready,” said Russell, who has filled in for Showalter when he has been ejected or briefly suspended.

TORONTO -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter was ejected from Friday night's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning after a heated argument with home plate umpire Angel Hernandez. On the play in question, Chris Davis swung at a down and in knuckleball from R.A. Dickey on a 1-2 count. The pitch got by catcher Josh Thole and Davis began running to first as if it was a dropped third strike. But Hernandez called the play dead, ruling it a foul ball. Dickey and Blue Jays manager John Gibbons argued with Hernandez, who gathered the umpiring crew together and ultimately called Davis out. That prompted Showalter to jump out of the Orioles dugout and launch into emphatic argument with Hernandez.

Perhaps it's just a small victory in a long season, but the Orioles left Nationals Park on Sunday without placing anyone on the disabled list. The Orioles lost two players to injury Saturday afternoon and their staff leader Thursday, but it looks like all three will avoid DL stints. Left-hander Brian Matusz , who was forced to leave Saturday's start with left hamstring cramps, said he was a little sore Sunday but he still believes he will be fine for his next start — which probably will be Friday.

Here's your home run count from July 1 through the start of the weekend: Albert Pujols, 19. Garrett Jones, 24. Just like you would have pegged it, right? When the Pirates promoted Jones, 28, from Triple-A Indianapolis in the middle of last season, he was considered the epitome of a 4-A player - that is, a very productive minor leaguer who isn't consistent enough to last in the big leagues. But since putting on a Pirates uniform, Jones has hit home runs at a rate that few - perhaps even Jones - envisioned.

Real cool moment in the Orioles clubhouse today when William “Steel” Russell, son of Orioles bench coach and former Pirates manager, John, learned that the Orioles had taken him in the 32nd round of the amateur draft. A left-handed hitting catcher from Midland Junior College in Texas, Steel joined his dad on this trip, and both hoped he would be drafted - but they didn't know it would be by the Orioles. “I am very proud. For your son to be drafted, especially with the team that I'm with right now, it is something that I'll cherish forever,” said John Russell, who was a first-round pick of the Philadelphia Phillies as a catcher in 1982.

Russell, a former big league catcher who managed the Pirates for three seasons before he was fired early last month, is interested in the opening, but he still has to work out contractual details with Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail . One source said that it's "moving in that direction, but it's not a fait accompli.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter interviewed former Pittsburgh Pirates manager John Russell on Friday for one of two vacant positions on his coaching staff, according to two industry sources. Russell, 49, could fit as Showalter's bench coach or third base coach, a position Russell held with the Pirates from 2003 to 2005 under then-manager Lloyd McClendon. Russell rejoined the Pirates in 2008 and served three seasons as manager before being fired at the end of this past season. He compiled a 186-299 record (.384 winning percentage)
