Ozzie Guillen talked to the Orioles about becoming their third base coach, but with the job going to longtime minor-league manager and coach Bobby Dickerson, the former Marlins manager remains in Chicago, working on his foundation, considering some TV work and mulling his next baseball step, which could include managing in Asia.
Guillen inquired about the Orioles job, according to someone familiar with the situation, though Guillen's son Ozzie Jr., who handles some of his business affairs, disputed the notion that Guillen actually applied for the job, suggesting only that his father may have had a brief third-party discussion regarding the O's job. Guillen Jr. did say his father wouldn't rule out coaching jobs, saying, "If it was the right situation, he would consider it."
Dickerson was promoted from Orioles bullpen coach after serving as an organizational coordinator following 12 years as a minor-league manager for the Diamondbacks and Cubs.
Orioles GM Dan Duquette declined to discuss the field of candidates, saying only, "We had a lot of candidates but decided to promote from within the Orioles organization."
