The Baltimore Orioles may have found their new manager.

Citing sources, MLB.com is reporting the team has named current Chicago Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde to the position.

Mike Elias, the Orioles newly hired Executive Vice President and General Manager has since denied the report.

Hyde, 45, joined the Cubs as a Minor League field coordinator in 2012, following a coaching stint with the Marlins.

If made official the hiring would be the first notable personnel move in Elias' tenure with the Orioles.

Last year Baltimore lost a franchise record and league worst 115 games.
