The Braves now have three vacancies on their coaching staff as bullpen coach Drew French will join the Orioles, according to a report from Rob Kubatko of MASN Sports. The Orioles’ web site on MLB.com also reported the news, citing a source.

French will serve as the pitching coach for the Orioles.

French, 39, has been with the Braves since 2021. He also has worked for the Astros. He will follow Chris Holt as Baltimore’s pitching coach.

The Braves lost both their first and third base coaches earlier this offseason. Ron Washington (pictured below) left to become manager of the Angels, and Eric Young Sr. joined this staff.
