Rick Peterson, who received rave reviews as the Orioles' organizational director of pitching development this season, will interview Saturday for the vacant Boston Red Sox pitching coach job, according to an industry source. Peterson, 58, has been a big league pitching coach for the Oakland Athletics, New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers. He spent 2012 working with the Orioles' minor leaguers -- and several who made the jump to the big leagues this season -- and was lauded by club executive vice president Dan Duquette for the way the players took to Peterson's teachings, which included extensive biomechanical work.

The Orioles' search for a new pitching coach brought them a number of impressive, experienced candidates. But when the Orioles decided on who would replace Rick Adair, they turned to Braves minor league pitching coordinator Dave Wallace, who has a strong reputation of developing arms at the major league level. Wallace, 66, has a decade of experience as a major league pitching coach, including two years on World Series teams and one championship (2004 Boston Red Sox). "Dave Wallace is a successful veteran pitching coach," Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said.

Sometimes it's easier to put these things into a question-and-answer format, and since I've gotten a bunch of questions from readers about what's next for the Orioles and their pitching coach situation, that's what we'll do. If you want to take a look at potential candidates, check out this piece that ran Friday morning. What type/style of pitching coach will the Orioles seek? My sense is they are looking for experience. Manager Buck Showalter has a rather experienced staff, and I think he'll add to that with someone who has already done the job in the majors.

The Orioles may be able to keep Rick Peterson after all. The Boston Red Sox have chosen Juan Nieves, who had been the White Sox's bullpen coach, to be their new pitching coach. Peterson, the Orioles' organization's director of pitching development, interviewed Saturday for the Boston position and had been reported to be the favorite. Peterson and new Red Sox manager John Farrell have had a relationship for more than two decades. The Orioles would like to retain Peterson, who was named the Cal Ripken Sr. Development Award winner this year for his work with minor league and rehabbing pitchers.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles director of pitching development Rick Peterson pointed to the brightly-colored string that was strung just above home plate in front of catchers as minor league pitchers threw their first bullpens of spring on Monday morning at the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twin Lakes Park. “That's the .193 line,” Peterson said. Peterson, a former major league pitching coach with the A's, Mets and Brewers who is in his second season in the Orioles organization, loves to talk stats.

Kevin Gausman made Orioles director of pitching development Rick Peterson look like a modern-day Nostradamus. After I watched Gausman, the Orioles top choice in the 2012 draft, dazzle for the Single-A Aberdeen Ironbirds in a 3-1 win over the Connecticut Tigers last August, Peterson couldn't stop gushing about the young right-hander. Gausman threw only 30 pitches that day - 20 for strikes. But his mid-90s fastball was dancing and his back-breaking changeup had the Tigers' batters swinging seemingly before the ball was out of the kid's hand.

The Orioles have announced their minor league coaching staffs for the 2013 season. Most of the staffs remain similar to last year's, although former Orioles player Ryan Minor will become the manager at advanced Class-A Frederick after managing at low Class-A Delmarva for the past three years. He replaces Orlando Gomez, who had been the Keys manager for the past three seasons. Gomez will become the manager of the Orioles' rookie level Gulf Coast League team. The staff at Triple-A Norfolk remains nearly intact, with Ron Johnson returning as manager for his second season, Mike Griffin as pitching coach and Denny Walling the hitting coach.  Jose Hernandez will become the team's field coach after working in that capacity at Frederick last year, Delmarva in 2011 and the Gulf Coast League in 2010.

The Boston Red Sox are reportedly hoping to name their new pitching coach Tuesday and Orioles director of pitching development Rick Peterson, who interviewed Saturday, is rumored to be the man to lead John Farrell's staff. Peterson, 58, coached Farrell, the Red Sox new manager, when Farrell was a pitcher in the Cleveland Indians' minor league system. They go way back. And there's no question that Peterson, pitching's professor of biomechanics, did an excellent job with the Orioles' minor leaguers and should get another shot in the big leagues.

A few days before the Major League Baseball draft last year, Baltimore Orioles director of pitcher development Rick Peterson had a conversation with longtime scout Dean Albany about a young pitcher from Millersville, Josh Hader. "I remember Dean calling me before the draft," said Peterson, in his second year with the Orioles. "As he described [Hader], I said, 'That's the kind of profile we are looking for.' " "I just told him there was an athletic left-handed pitcher I really liked, and we are going to have to take our time with him," Albany recalled.

SARASOTA, Fla. - As pitchers conducted their first workout of the spring at the Orioles' minor league camp Monday, the beginning of two comebacks took place in the bullpen area of the Buck O'Neil Baseball Complex at Twin Lakes Park. It's been nearly four years since the Orioles made highly touted high schoolers Matt Hobgood and Mychal Givens their top two picks in the 2009 draft. Both have struggled to live up to expectations, but they both arrive in camp this spring with renewed hope for their careers.

With all the talk of the biomechanical magic Orioles pitching development director Rick Peterson is performing throughout the minor leagues, the jury is still out on whether his approach is working with the organization's young pitchers. Peterson was hired by Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette to help develop the organization's pitching with his unique scientific approach. Right-hander Chris Tillman is the first poster boy of Peterson's work. He joined the Orioles after building an impressive resume at Triple-A Norfolk.
