DeMarlo Hale is leaving the Baltimore Orioles to become bench coach for new Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons.
Hale spent one year with Baltimore after six seasons with the Boston Red Sox, where he served as third base coach from 2006-09 followed by two years as bench coach. He was Texas' first base and outfielder coach from 2002-05.
Toronto also said Monday that Pete Walker will move from bullpen coach to pitching coach, Chad Mottola will shift from Triple-A hitting coach to the big league hitting coach, Dwayne Murphy will move from hitting coach to first base and outfielder coach and Luis Rivera will move from coaching assistant to third base coach.
Bullpen coach remains open.
Gibbons, Toronto's manager from 2004-08, was rehired last week.
