The Post-Gazette adds that Juan Samuel of the Orioles might be another managerial target:
However, a source said Pirates officials also reached out to Baltimore Orioles coach and interim manager Juan Samuel, who went 17-34 before Buck Showalter arrived. The fiery Samuel, 49, a longtime major-league infielder and outfielder mostly with the Phillies, was even ejected once in his nearly two months as interim, flipping his cap into the infield while arguing over his pitching coach getting tossed.
Samuel was a minor-league manager before coaching third base for the Orioles. After serving as the Orioles’ interim manager, he declined a position in the coaching staff of new manager Buck Showalter, but stayed with the Orioles as an evaluator in the Dominican Republic.
