Report: Orioles expected to part ways with GM Dan Duquette
The Baltimore Orioles are cleaning house.
According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Orioles are expected to part ways with general manager and executive VP Dan Duquette, ensuring a clean break in pretty much all aspects of baseball operations.
Dan Duquette also expected to be let go by the #Orioles, sources tell The Athletic. Team already has parted ways with Buck Showalter.

Duquette joins manager Buck Showalter in being shown the door after a disastrous 47-115 season in Baltimore. It’s been a rapid fall for the Orioles, who made the playoffs three times between 2012 and 2016 but totally collapsed this year.
It’s an obvious next step for the Orioles, who should now embark on a full rebuild. They don’t have much to start with, so the new braintrust will have quite the task ahead of them.
