Dempsey will get interview; Wedge likely to have second
Eric Wedge and Rick Dempsey do not have interviews scheduled with Andy MacPhail in Baltimore yet, but both are expected to meet with the club’s president of baseball operations in the near future.
Wedge was the first candidate to interview, when MacPhail traveled to see him on June 9. But Wedge, the former Cleveland Indians skipper and 2007 AL Manager of the Year, has not yet met with the club’s principal owner Peter Angelos.
Therefore, a second interview – with Wedge coming to Baltimore – is expected, but has not yet been scheduled, an industry source said.
Dempsey, the long-time Orioles player and current MASN broadcaster, has interviewed for the club’s managerial position three times in the past. He is expected to interview for it again, an industry source said, but a specific date has not been determined.
The only other candidate the Orioles have interviewed is Bobby Valentine, who reportedly pulled himself out of consideration on Wednesday.
