Roch Kubatko of the MASN first broke the news yesterday evening.
Adair took a leave of absence from the team on August 15 to be with his ailing father, that supplanted Bill Castro as the pitching coach for the Birds. It was a question of whether or not Adair would return at all, and now we found out the answer is no.
Per Kubatko's report, the Orioles will begin interviews for the position next week and would like to have a decision made by the end of the month.
Obviously, Castro will be one of the candidates as the pitching staff did improve over his short tenure, but it is hard to tell how much of that was him, or just simply the pitchers improving on their own.
The hint here from the Orioles is that they are actually conducting interviews, which would lead one to believe the new pitching coach is likely to come outside of the organization.
Believe it or not, the new pitching coach will be the fifth pitching coach of Manager Buck Showalter's tenure here, and hopefully it will be someone who can turn around a young pitching staff who ranked 10th in the American League in ERA this season.
