The revamped coaching staff, announced Wednesday, also includes Arnie Beyeler as first base coach, Jose Flores as third base coach, John Wasdin as bullpen coach, Jose

Fernandez as major league coach and Tim Cossins as major league field coordinator and catching instructor.

Wasdin begins his third season with the Orioles organization after spending 2017-18 as minor league pitching coordinator.
