Orioles likely to interview only 4 more: Duquette, Oppenheimer, Radcliff and Baird (update: Watson out)
The Orioles are likely to interview just four more candidates for their open GM position, according to an industry source.
They also lost one, when Los Angeles Dodgers' assistant GM De Jon Watson pulled his name out of consideration, according to another source.
They will speak with former Boston GM Dan Duquette on Friday and may interview the New York Yankees’ scouting director Damon Oppenheimer this weekend.
They have asked for and are expected to receive permission from the Yankees to interview Oppenheimer and from the Minnesota Twins to talk to vice president Mike Radcliff.
They also have asked the Boston Red Sox permission to talk to assistant GM and former Kansas City Royals GM Allard Baird.
They have not asked for permission for any other candidates and likely will not unless they do not settle on one candidate.
The Orioles did have interest in Chicago White Sox assistant GM Rick Hahn and Tampa Bay GM Andrew Friedman, but neither will interview.
