SEATTLE, Wash. -- Earlier Friday Eric Wedge notified the Seattle Mariners that he has chosen not to return to manage the club in 2014.  He and the club agreed that he will manage the team for the final three games of this season and will fulfill the remainder of his contract (which expires October 31, 2013).  The 2013 season was his third in the position.

Executive Vice President and General Manager Jack Zduriencik said, "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." 

The final three games of the season will be played at Safeco Field in Seattle against the Oakland Athletics. The series begins tonight at 7:10 pm PT and continues with 1:10 pm PT games Saturday and Sunday.

Wedge was named manager of the Mariners on October 18, 2010. He managed the Cleveland Indians for seven seasons (2003-2009).
