The Bowie Baysox announced yesterday that former Orioles outfielder Al Bumbry will join manager Pete Mackanin's coaching staff for the 1994 season.Bumbry, who recently was released from the major-league coaching staff of the Boston Red Sox, was considered a candidate for the Orioles major-league staff, but that opening went to Don Buford.The Orioles might have chosen Bumbry if first-base coach Davey Lopes had left for a managerial position, but apparently felt there would be some redundancy with both Lopes and Bumbry on the staff.

It has been nearly a decade since a hands-on owner and a veteran manager parted ways, resulting in chronic losing for a once-proud franchise. This story, though, has nothing to do with Davey Johnson and Peter Angelos. And this one could feature a reunion between the manager and owner. On Tuesday, the day the Pittsburgh Pirates fired Lloyd McClendon, St. Louis Cardinals scout Jim Leyland was met at PNC Park by reporters wanting to know if he'd like to again lead the Bucs. "No comment," Leyland said, partially in respect to current interim manager Pete Mackanin.

BOWIE -- Manager Pete Mackanin is afraid catcher Cesar Devarez will look at the Bowie Baysox's statistics sheet one day and ask the fatal question.Am I this good?After five minor-league seasons in which he batted .234, Devarez is hitting .319, as he heads for the Double-A Eastern League All-Star game tonight in Binghamton, N.Y.His three-run homer was the major blow in yesterday's 6-3 victory over the New Haven Ravens. The win leaves the Baysox a half-game behind the first-place Harrisburg Senators in the Southern Division.

BOWIE -- At least Bowie Baysox pitcher Brian Sackinsky got a good night's sleep.Instead of subjecting him to the grueling 10 1/2 -hour, nightlong bus ride from Portland, Maine, after the final game of the road trip, the Baysox let him remain behind in his hotel room.The idea was that he would fly home yesterday in Baysox owner Peter Kirk's private plane, rested for his start against the Albany Yankees.The well-intentioned plan disintegrated.Even before it took off, Kirk's plane developed mechanical trouble.

The Arm.No matter how high Alex Ochoa's batting average climbs, how many runs he drives in or how many bases he steals, that major-league throwing arm, the one that can cut down unsuspecting runners with a vicious flair, is his signature item.It is the primary topic when a conversation turns to Ochoa, who is always among the first Orioles farmhands mentioned when opposing teams talk trade."I can't explain my arm," said Ochoa.

The Bowie Baysox didn't miss Armando Benitez.Actually, Benitez has the highest ERA in the Baysox bullpen since his return to the Double-A team Friday. Benitez, who now shares the Baysox's closer role with Joe Borowski, has given up a run and two hits in his first 2 2/3 innings back.Borowski has five saves and a win this month, not allowing a run while striking out 18 in his past 11 2/3 innings."I am very fortunate in that I have two closers," Baysox manager Pete Mackanin said. "If I had to put together a team from scratch, I would want this situation everywhere I managed."
