Source: Trembley to be fired

The fact Baltimore Orioles manager Dave Trembley is going to be fired is inevitable; the only question is when, a source told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney.

Juan Samuel, the Orioles' third base coach, is expected to be named the interim manager when a move is made, the source said.

Trembley's standing is in question series to series, and Baltimore has gotten wrecked in Yankee Stadium repeatedly this week. The O's have lost eight straight.

The Baltimore Sun reported the Orioles are expected to dismiss Trembley prior to Friday's series opener against the Boston Red Sox.

The club declined comment to multiple media sources. Orioles president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail did not join the team on the trip to New York.
