MLB: Mariners Manager Eric Wedge Suffers Mild Stroke

Jul 24 2013, 7:56pm CDT | by

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge suffered a mild stroke and will miss at least 10 games.

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge suffered a mild stroke, accorinding to his doctors. 

The team issued a statement confirming his condition but also assured a complete recovery, per USA Today Sports. 

"After much testing the doctors believe he suffered a very mild stroke. The doctors expect that he will have a full and complete recovery."

Greg Johns of MLB.com reports Wedge was already released from the hospital on Wednesday. Johns adds he will miss the four games of the remaining homestand against the Minnesota Twins and the upcoming six-game trip against the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles. 

Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik says the team expects Wedge to recover completely and that he needs to stay home and rest. 

"I've had several conversations with him and the doctors. We expect a complete recovery. What he needs to do is stay home for the next short period of time. We expect him to be back sooner than later. He sounds normal. Talking to him, it sounds like everything is fine and he's ready to roll. But we're going to err on the side of caution.

"The common-sense thing is to have Eric rest, and it makes sense that he won't make this trip to the East Coast. When we get back, he'll be evaluated and we'll see where we stand."

According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Wedge was assisted off the field on Moday after what team medical staff initially diagnosed as "dizzy spells." He seemed to be all right, but was admitted to the hospital as a precautionary measure. 

He was at the hospital for two nights. During his stay, Wedge "reportedly remained in relatively good spirits and watched the Mariners on TV, remaining in contact with his coaching staff."

Bench coach Robby Thompson, who will serve as interim manager, said there is a lot of concern for Wedge, who cares deeply for his players. 

"I'm sure there's a lot of concern out there. Eric is a very caring man and loves every one of those guys in that clubhouse. I think they have that in return for him."

Wedge, who previously managed the Cleveland Indians from 2003-2009, is on his third year as manager of the Mariners. During his tenure in Seattle, he has posted a 190-234 (.448) win-loss record.
