Updating the O's GM candidates list

According to The Baltimore Sun's Peter Schmuck, the Orioles have updated the names on their general manager wish list. That list includes:
. . . Arizona Diamondbacks senior vice president for scouting and player development Jerry DiPoto, Texas Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine, Toronto Blue Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava, Florida Marlins assistant GM Dan Jennings, Los Angeles Dodgers assistant GM De Jon Watson, Detroit Tigers assistant GM Al Avila, Los Angeles Angels executive and former GM Tony Reagins and Dodgers assistant GM Logan White.
MASN's Roch Kubatko added two other notes: that "Josh Byrnes (Padres) no longer is being considered at this time"; and that "Orioles are interested in Gerry Hunsicker (Rays), but they're convinced that he'll stay in Tampa Bay."

Other noteworthy Orioles items:

- Scouting director Joe Jordan has left the organization to be the Philadelphia Phillies' director of player development.

- John Stockstill, the O's director of player development, will return next season (via Kubatko's link).

- And, according to Buck Showalter (via Schmuck), there won't be many changes to his coaching staff
