Mariners manager Eric Wedge will not return in 2014 and it was his call. The Mariners made the announcement Friday saying that Wedge informed the club he won't be returning next season. He will manage the final three games of the 2013 season.

“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” General manager Jack Zduriencik said in a statement.

This was Wedge's third season as Mariners manager. His record was 67-95 in 2011 75-87 in 2012 and the Mariners are 70-89 this season.
