Former Rangers coach expected to join O's

Dom Chiti, who was Buck Showalter's bullpen coach for the 2006 season with the Texas Rangers, is expected to rejoin Showalter as bullpen coach in Baltimore for the 2014 season, according to various reports, including this one in The Baltimore Sun.

Chiti, who was a special assistant with the Atlanta Braves, would join new coach Dave Wallace in Baltimore. Wallace was with the Braves and worked with Chiti there. Chiti played in the Baltimore organization in his final year as a player in 1981.

Wallace was hired last week to replace Rick Adair, another former Ranger (he was minor league pitching coordinator for four seasons).
