Baltimore is expected to name Dan Duquette its new "president of baseball operations" on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports (MASN is partially owned by the team). The move is -- at this point -- hardly unexpected. After the Orioles were turned down by the Blue Jays' Tony LaCava, the team moved on to Duquette, settling on the former Red Sox and Expos general manager as CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler wrote on Saturday. The Associated Press reports Duquette signed a three-year contract on Sunday.
The Baltimore Sun reported the Orioles didn't make a formal offer to Duquette on Saturday, but he met with team owner Peter Angelos and others on Sunday, according to Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman (via Twitter).
Duquette, 53, served as Montreal's GM from 1991-94 and then was the Red Sox GM from 1994-2002. His cousin, Jim Duquette, was vice president of baseball operations with the Orioles in 2005 and 2006 under Mike Flanagan.
