The last-place Baltimore Orioles could be looking to part ways with manager Buck Showalter, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, citing sources.

Both general manager Dan Duquette and the skipper are on expiring contracts and, while no move is imminent, Orioles ownership may be looking to move on from both.

The development comes after many believed Showalter would survive the impending purge of the rebuilding squad. However, a record of 19-48 that has the Orioles sitting 27 games back of first place has altered ownership's approach.

According to the report, Showalter's voice - long valued in the clubhouse and front office - no longer resonates with players as they await a trade out of Baltimore prior to the non-waiver deadline.

Showalter, a 20-year managerial veteran, is in his ninth season at the helm of the Orioles. During his tenure in Baltimore after joining halfway through the 2010 season, the Orioles have won 51 percent of their games and finished first once.
