Rumors of his replacement have already begun to swirl.
NESN announced they would be replacing Orsillo at the end of the season after a 15-year run with the team.
Padres President and CEO Mike Dee is a former Red Sox executive and is believed to be a big fan of Orsillo, as well as team Chairman Ron Fowler.
Orsillo’s agent confirmed that the Padres have shown interest, but a deal wouldn’t be struck until Oct. 4, when the regular season concludes.
If a deal is struck, it’s believed that Orsillo would join the Fox Sports San Diego broadcast in some capacity next season as Enberg wraps up his legendary broadcasting career.
A potential deal could also include Orsillo calling games nationally for Fox Sports parent channels.
Enberg has been broadcasting professionally since 1965 and has had stints with the Anaheim Angels, NBC, CBS and now the Padres.
He was given the National Baseball Hall of Fame’s 2015 Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasting excellence.
