The Baltimore Orioles will interview former Montreal Expos and Boston Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette, according to a tweet from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

"Source: Dan Duquette to interview with #Orioles for GM vacancy tomorrow," Rosenthal tweeted.

Duquette was the GM of the Expos from 1991 to 1994, at which point he took over the same position with the Boston Red Sox.  Although Duquette would be dismissed from the Red Sox in 2002 before the team finally won a World Series, he was responsible for acquiring many crucial pieces of what would become the first Red Sox championship team, including Pedro Martínez, Manny Ramírez, and Johnny Damon. Duquette will be the sixth interview the Orioles have conducted for the general manager vacancy according to reports, following Jerry Dipoto,  Tony LaCava, De Jon Watson, John Stockstill, and, most recently, Scott Proefrock, who reportedly interviewed on Thursday.
