The Baltimore Orioles may be looking at the Phillies to fill a front office opening. And vice-versa.
It's believed that Phillies assistant general manager Scott Proefrock is on the O's list of potential general manager candidates after Andy McPhail stepped down. They have not asked for permission to talk to Proefrock yet, sources said, but that could happen after a scheduled meeting between owner Peter Angelos and manager Buck Showalter today.
Before joining the Phillies, Proefrock worked for three years as the Orioles director of baseball administration. He still lives in Phoenix, Maryland.
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Sun reports that the Phillies have already interviewed Orioles amateur scouting director Joe Jordan for the player development opening created when Chuck LaMar abruptly resigned in September.
Jordan, 49, has been in his current position for the past seven years.
