SEATTLE (AP) - New Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik says
recently fired Milwaukee Brewers manager Ned Yost and former
Seattle interim manager Jim Riggleman are two candidates to be
Seattle's new skipper in 2009.
Riggleman was hired as the bench coach of the Washington
Nationals on Friday, but the Mariners say he remains in the running
to return to Seattle.
Zduriencik (Zur-EN'-sik) was introduced as Seattle's eighth
full-time GM. The 57-year-old former special assistant to GM Doug
Melvin in Milwaukee says he wants to choose a new Mariners manager
soon. He did not offer a timeline.
