The Orioles will announced within the hour that manager Dave Trembley has been fired. Third base coach Juan Samuel will serve as the interim manager, starting with tonight's series opener against the Boston Red Sox. Triple-A Norfolk manager Gary Allenson will join the club as the third-base coach.
The search for the full-time manager going forward will begin immediately and the Orioles have no timetable for filling the vacancy. According to sources, they have a couple of candidates in mind, but no interviews have or will be scheduled until after the Trembley news is officially announced.
Samuel will also be considered to fill the vacancy on a long-term basis.
