The Orioles are closing in on a deal with current analyst Buck Showalter to be their next manager, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com. Showalter, 54, is expected to take over as manager sometime after the All-Star Break. 

Showalter formerly managed the Yankees, Diamondbacks and Rangers, but hasn't been in uniform since 2006. He currently serves as an ESPN analyst.

It is unclear whether or not interim manager Juan Samuel will return to being third base coach once they hire Showalter.
