Orioles reportedly ‘looking closely’ at Kim Ng for GM vacancy

As the Baltimore Orioles look to replace departed GM Dan Duquette, one interesting name has emerged. MLB’s current Senior Vice President for Baseball Operations, Kim Ng.

Ng has also been reportedly discussed as a possible option for both the New York Mets and San Francisco Giants, as well. She would be the first woman to hold a GM job in any major sport.

Baltimore has also talked to former Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Ned Colletti. Colletti and Ng worked together in Los Angeles from the time Colletti was hired as GM (2005) until Ng left to take her current job in the league office (2011).

Ng has certainly been around baseball. She served as the Vice President and Assistant to the GM in Los Angeles. Prior to that, she held various jobs with the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees.

She would bring nearly 30 years of experience to the table for a downtrodden Orioles franchise coming off one of the worst seasons in modern MLB history.
