Terry Collins out as manager of Orix Buffaloes

You may recall that Collins, the former Angels manager, left his position as Dodgers player development director two winters ago to take the Orix job. One of the Japanese reporters who regularly covers the Dodgers just told me that Terry and his bench coach, longtime Dodgers minor-league coach/instructor Jon Debus resigned, along with pitching coach Mike Brown. The Buffaloes had just fallen into fifth place in the six-team Pacific League. Debus was with the club for something like 25 years, with only one of them at the big-league level, when he was Jim Tracy’s bullpen coach in 2005.
