Trembley appreciates relationship with O's players

HOUSTON -- There are still seven players remaining on the Orioles' roster who were managed by Astros third-base coach Dave Trembley, who was the skipper in Baltimore from June 18, 2007, until June 4, 2010. He joined the Astros prior to this season.

The players Trembley managed are Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters, Jim Johnson, Troy Patton, Chris Tillman and Brian Matusz. Trembley was the first big league manager for Tillman, Matusz and Jones, and he had Markakis in the instructional league.

"They've all become Gold Glove, All-Star players," Trembley said. "They had a tremendous amount of ability and they learned to play Major League Baseball at the Major League level. All of them spent limited time in the Minor Leagues, much like the young man they have over there in [Manny] Machado. It was because of their makeup that they could handle it."

Trembley keeps in touch with as many of the players as he can and takes pride in their careers.

"I'm very proud and appreciative of the relationship I've had with those guys," he said. "I think if you ask all those guys, they would be very honest and say we were patient with them and very supportive."
