LaCava staying put

Tony LaCava turned down an offer to become the new general manager of the Orioles on Tuesday afternoon. The news was first reported by FoxSports.com and has since been confirmed by multiple MLB.com sources.

The latest development comes as a major surprise considering how far into negotiations the two sides appeared to be. LaCava went through two interviews in Baltimore and met with owner Peter Angelos on Monday afternoon. No immediate reason behind the decision was provided to either report.

Baltimore’s loss is the Blue Jays’ gain. LaCava returns to his role as assistant general manager and director of player development. The native of Pittsburgh is Anthopoulos’ right-hand man and he has been credited with turning Toronto’s Minor League system into one of the best around baseball.
