The Baltimore Orioles appear to have found their next general manager.
According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Orioles are expected to hire Houston Astros assistant GM Mike Elias to help run their front office.

Elias joined the Astros in 2012 and played a role in assembling a roster that won the World Series in 2017. He also helped build a farm system that was regarded as one of the best in Major League Baseball at one point. Skills in both of those areas would be welcomed by an Orioles team that will be looking to rebuild after moving many veteran pieces last season and replacing them with young, unproven players.
The Orioles have been looking for a new GM ever since moving on from Dan Duquette as executive vice president and general manager last month.
