The Orioles have already interviewed Diamondbacks senior vice president Jerry Dipoto and Blue Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava of the Blue Jays for their vacant General Manager job. Who else will be considered for the post?
- The Orioles have received permission from the Dodgers to interview De Jon Watson for their GM position, an industry source tells Dan Connolly of The Baltimore Sun. Watson serves as the Dodgers' assistant GM and player development director and recently spoke to Ben Nicholson-Smith about possibly becoming a GM.
- Watson's interview should take place early next week, perhaps as early as Tuesday, Connolly tweets.
- There were doubts whether Los Angeles would grant the Orioles permission to speak to Watson, tweets Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com. Yesterday, the Marlins officially denied the club permission to interview Dan Jennings.
- Meanwhile, the O's have yet to ask permission to speak with Dodgers assistant GM Logan White, says Connolly (via Twitter). That conversation could still take place as the Orioles are expected to talk to a few more people before they conclude their search. White was profiled in our GM Candidate series earlier this month.
