Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles have received permission from the Dodgers to interview assistant general manager De Jon Watson for their vacant general manager position.
Watson, 45, has worked with the Dodgers for the past five seasons, including the last four as the head of player development. He interviewed last year for the Diamondbacks’ GM post, a job which eventually went to Kevin Towers.
The Orioles have already interviewed Diamondbacks senior vice president Jerry Dipoto and Blue Jays assistant general manager Tony LaCava. Connolly writes that the O’s may talk to a few more people after Watson, though it’s believed they have yet to ask permission to interview any other candidates. Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine has been mentioned as a possibility, but the Orioles will likely need to wait until after the World Series in order to speak with him.
