Orioles pitching coach Connor resigns
“I don’t think people realize the intensity and the toll that these jobs take,” Showalter said. “Especially guys that care like he does. He just didn’t feel like he was able to provide what was needed.”
The Orioles were 30-33 and last in the AL East going into Tuesday night’s game at Toronto.
“I think any time that there’s a change, there are certain adjustments that are made,” Adair said. “Obviously Goose (Connor) is more experienced than I am and if I can be half of what he has been, I’ll be OK.”
Orioles pitchers said the sudden change took them by surprise.
“He’ll be missed,” starter Jeremy Guthrie said. “It’s too bad our time was so short for each one of us because we were learning a lot from him.”
Guthrie said he did not expect the move would cause any ripples with Baltimore’s staff.
“I think it will be relatively seamless,” Guthrie said. “They’ve worked together really well over the last four months.”
