Eric Wedge won’t return in 2014

The Mariners just sent out a press release advising that Eric Wedge notified the ballclub he has “chosen not to return to manage the club in 2014.”

Wedge and the club agreed that he will manage the Mariners for the final three games of the season, and fulfill the remainder of his contract. The contract expires Oct. 31, 2013.

General manager Jack Zduriencik said in the release, “I accept Eric’s decision not to return and thank him for his hard work here the past three years. I want to wish him and his family all the best in the future.

The Mariners close the season with three game against the A’s, beginning tonight. This news comes just two days after Wedge spoke out about being left to hang by the ballclub with no resolution on his expiring contract. Zduriencik now will be looking for his third manager since taking over as GM, having previously fired Don Wakamatsu in the middle of his second season.
