The Orioles are expected to bring in former pitching coach Rick Petersen and trainer Chris Correnti, according to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun.
Peterson, 57, is a former pitching coach of the New York Mets, Milwaukee Brewers, and Oakland Athletics. He is also a former pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Interestingly enough, Peterson was actually replaced by the Brewers in 2011 with former Orioles pitching coach Rick Kranitz. Peterson was also drafted by the Orioles out of high school, but did not sign with them. He will reportedly be “the organizational pitching guru” , with his true title to come when the Orioles announce the signing, according to Connolly.
Correnti, 45, will be the Orioles rehab coordinator and work with the current Orioles trainers. He has most recently worked with the Red Sox and Mets pitchers, and is Pedro Martinez’s trainer.
