Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik held a team meeting with players about a half-hour ago and told them manager Eric Wedge will be spending a second night in the hospital tonight while he awaits the results of extensive testing done since yesterday.

Wedge entered the hospital yesterday evening after experiencing dizzy spells during batting practice.

Zduriencik addressed the media shortly after.

“Eric is going to be kept another evening for observation,” Zduriencik said. “He’s doing well. I had an opportunity to speak with him this morning. I visited with him and his wife Kate and he’s doing well. He’s in good spirits.

“But it’s a little premature to speculate yet. To say exactly what the prognosis is going to be. But more than anything else, they just want to keep him another evening as they get the results of the tests that are ongoing.”
