Orioles interested in Atlanta's Dave Wallace as pitching coach

You can add another experienced name to the list of pitching coach candidates that the Orioles are targeting.

According to an industry source, the Orioles have sought permission from the Atlanta Braves and expect to interview Dave Wallace, who has been the Braves' minor league pitching coordinator for the past four seasons.

Wallace, 66, has been a major league pitching coach for four different teams: the Houston Astros (2007), the Boston Red Sox (2003 to 2006), the New York Mets (1999-2000) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (1995-97).

Wallace, a Connecticut native who currently lives in Massachusetts, pitched briefly in the majors in the 1970s. He is one of four outside candidates expected to interview with the Orioles, joining former Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach Rich Dubee, Seattle Mariners pitching coach Carl Willis and Texas Rangers bullpen coach Andy Hawkins.

The club is expected to interview three to four candidates next week as they attempt to replace Rick Adair.
