Orioles Part Ways With Buck Showalter

October 3rd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The Orioles won’t be retaining manager Buck Showalter, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.  Showalter will be leaving the organization entirely, and not taking on any other role in the front office. Showalter’s contract was set to officially expire this month, and it was widely expected that the O’s would be making a change in the dugout in the wake of their nightmarish 115-loss season.  There was some speculation that Showalter could be offered another job to remain in the organization, and while Showalter and O’s management had talks about that possibility in the past, Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun tweets that “discussions never got to that point” in Showalter’s meeting with team ownership today.
