Mariners manager Eric Wedge is still not out of the hospital this morning, though he expects to get more news about his test results later today. That’s the word given us by interim manager Robby Thompson, who spoke with Wedge earlier this morning by phone.
“He sounded great, he really did,” Thompson said. “He really sounded good, he’s upbeat. Other than that…he wanted to know about the lineup, how guys are doing…more baseball related than anything.”
Wedge was hospitalized on Monday after suffering from dizziness while the Mariners were taking batting practice prior to the series opener. Thompson agreed Wedge’s medical ordeal has played out longer than he’d initially anticipated.
“Obviously, we were hoping he’d get out right away,” Thompson said. “But under these circumstances and with all of the testing that he’s been through, it’s taken a little longer. They were just really leaning on the cautious side of things. Hopefully, if any of us were in the hospital, we’d want out of there as quickly as possible. So, we’ll see how he feels and we’ll know more later this afternoon, we’re hoping.”More
