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.

The Orioles have hired former Texas Rangers first base coach Dave Anderson as their new minor league infield instructor, the club announced Wednesday. Anderson will replace Matt Martin, who was in the role for just one season and was not retained for 2014. Anderson served as the Rangers' first-base coach last season, and he was the club's third-base coach for four seasons prior to that. He was also Texas' major league infield coach. His contract was not renewed by the Rangers at the end of the 2013 season.

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.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - As the Orioles plugged through this offseason without adding a premium bat to the lineup, club officials kept saying that a needed offensive boost could come from two players already on the 40-man roster, two guys who had combined to play in just 33 games in 2012. Veteran second baseman Brian Roberts and left fielder Nolan Reimold were hoping that the club would afford them one more chance to prove they are healthy enough to contribute. "Obviously, they could have easily gone out and tried to fill spots that haven't been necessarily occupied every day in the last year or two," said Roberts, whose season ended last year on July 1 and who had hip surgery in August.

Juan Samuel, Orioles third base coach What differences have you noticed in the team since a manager change was made? I think [the players] are more focused, and I think they are trying to do something rather than just waiting for something to happen. I think they are trying to force the action and take it to the other team.

Quote: "When you play the world champions, you want to show up and perform the best you can. Maybe subconsciously we play a little better against that class of team." - Tigers closer Todd Jones, who recorded his 26th save. It's a fact: Yankees' Andy Pettitte has started on three days' rest three times in the past three weeks. He is 1-2 with a 2.01 ERA in those games. Who's hot: Tigers second baseman Damion Easley has a 99-game errorless streak at second base. Who's not: Tigers outfielder Rick Becker went 0-for-5 with five strikeouts - four looking - in Yankees series.

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.

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.

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.

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.
