The Orioles are following their first winning season in six years by leaving their coaching staff intact.
According to multiple sources, the only change coming is the addition of Cody Asche as offensive strategy coach. Asche just completed his first season as upper-level hitting coordinator in the minors.
Anthony Villa will now oversee the entire system as minor league hitting coordinator after working at the lower levels in 2022.
Manager Brandon Hyde, whose option already was picked up for next season, will again have Fredi González as his bench coach, Chris Holt as pitching coach/director of pitching, Darren Holmes as assistant pitching coach, Ryan Fuller and Matt Borgschulte as co-hitting coaches, Tim Cossins as major league field coordinator/catching instructor, Anthony Sanders as first base coach/outfield instructor, Tony Mansolino as third base coach/infield instructor, and José Hernández as major league coach.
Holmes moved from the bullpen to the dugout this season, swapping places with Cossins. He previously held the title of “bullpen coach.”
The Orioles employed co-hitting coaches for the first time, promoting Fuller from Double-A Bowie and hiring Borgschulte from the Twins’ system, where he was hitting coach at Triple-A St. Paul. Fuller also had worked as the full-season hitting coordinator before his promotion.
González completed his third season with the Orioles and first as bench coach. He was the major league coach during his first two years in Baltimore.
Holt spent the 2020 season as director of pitching after joining the organization in 2019 as minor league pitching coordinator, following executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias to the Orioles from Houston.
Cossins is entering his fifth season on the staff as one of the original hires under the new regime.
Mansolino spent 10 seasons in Cleveland’s organization before the Orioles hired him prior to the 2021 season. Sanders just completed his third season with the team after spending two years as Rockies outfield and baserunning coordinator.
Hernández was the major league coach in 2019 and again this season after serving as assistant hitting coach in 2020-21. He spent nine years coaching in the minors.
Asche played in the majors for parts of five seasons, the first four with the Phillies beginning in 2013. He was hired as hitting coach at Single-A Clearwater in March 2021.
The Orioles will make their official staffing announcements later in the offseason, including any changes on the minor league side.
