BALTIMORE (AP) -Dave Trembley will return next season as manager of the Baltimore Orioles.
The Orioles scheduled a news conference for Wednesday afternoon to announce that Trembley, who took over for fired manager Sam Perlozzo on June 18, will retain the position entering the 2008 season, said Andy MacPhail, president of baseball operations for the team.
MacPhail declined to comment further until the news conference.
Trembley was assured July 31 that he would be allowed to finish the current season. The team considered the possibility of conducting a managerial search during the offseason, but Trembley's no-nonsense manner and surprising success earned him an extended look.
