The Seattle Mariners have hired former Pittsburgh Pirates manager and Detroit Tigers coach Lloyd McClendon to be their new manager on Tuesday.

Lloyd McClendon is the new manager of the Seattle Mariners.

This was made official by the team on Nov. 5, per Nick Eaton of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Among the previous candidates for the job, it was only McClendon who had experience as an MLB manager. He called the shots for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001-2005. 

McClendon's hiring was first reported by the Puget Sound Business Journal, which tweeted,"#Mariners will name Detroit Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon as their new manager, a source close to team says. Announcement soon." 

A year after his tenure in Pittsburgh ended, McClendon joined manager Jim Leyland with the Detroit Tigers. He became the Tigers' hitting coach in 2007 and had been with the team until its ALCS run in 2013, a six-game loss to the eventual World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox, 

The 54-year-old McClendon becomes Seattle's 16th manager in team history. He will be introduced as their new skipper at a press conference on Nov. 7. 

McClendon couldn't be more excited.

"I am extremely excited about the opportunity to manage the Seattle Mariners. Seattle has a tremendous group of talented players and the fans and the city should be excited about the club's future. I'm looking for this group to take a big step forward." 

For his part, Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik praises McClendon's intelligence and work ethic. 

"Lloyd is a bright and articulate guy. He has major-league managerial experience and he has served in a vital capacity in Detroit under one of the game's best managers. He is a tireless worker and is very respected by the players with whom he has worked. We look forward to Lloyd embracing our players as we move the Mariners forward." 

McClendon becomes Zduriencik's third managerial hire since he took over in 2008. The ties between the two men date back to 1991-1993, when the former was a player and the latter the director of scouting of the Pirates. McClendon also suited up for the Cincinnati Reds, Chicago Cubs and Tigers from 1987-1994. 

He also succeeds Eric Wedge, whose contract expired at the end of the 2013 MLB season. He decided not to stay on, citing differences with management. 

With Wedge at the helm, the Mariners stumbled to three straight losing seasons. Their 71-91 (.438) record in 2013 ranked them fourth in the American League West, 25 games behind the first-place Oakland Athletics. 

McClendon's career managerial record stands at 336-446 (.430).

Chen solid through 8 innings, O’s blank Mariners

Baltimore Orioles v Boston Red Sox
SEATTLE — Wie-Yen Chen threw one of his finest games in the major leagues, allowing just five hits over eight innings in Baltimore’s 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night. What everyone wanted to talk about, however, was his defence. Chen (11-3), who has won his past four starts, set the tone in the first inning when he bounded off the mound, gathered a slow roller and glove-flipped the ball to the plate to prevent a run ...
