The Mariners have fired general manager Jack Zduriencik.
Zduriencik has seemingly been on the hot seat for a few years now and it's not a surprise to see him get the boot in the midst of the Mariners' disappointing season. Assistant GM Jeff Kingston will handle the GM duties for the remainder of the season, although it's unclear whether he might be a candidate to get the full-time gig. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says that the club has already reached out to former Rockies GM Dan O'Dowd. Aug 28 - 11:33 AM

Mariners hired Edgar Martinez as hitting coach.

Howard Johnson, the club's now-former hitting coach, is being reassigned to a different role within the organization. Martinez played all 18 of his major league seasons in Seattle, tallying 2,247 hits with an exceptional .312/.418/.515 career slash line. He's probably the best pure DH in major league history and will bring a fresh perspective to the underperforming M's offense.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon was ejected from Sunday's game against the Twins.

McClendon was yapping at home plate umpire Sean Barber on his way back to the dugout from visiting his starting pitcher Roenis Elias, and must've said the magic words as Barber gave him the early gate. It's the first time that McClendon has been tossed this year.

The Mariners informed pitching coach Carl Willis that despite having a year remaining on his contract, that he would not be back with the team for the upcoming season.

The Mariners also re-assigned bullpen coach Jaime Navarro to the minor leagues. Willis, who was close friends with former manager Eric Wedge, said he'll continue to pursue other opportunities and understood that new manager Lloyd McClendon wanted to bring in his own coaching staff.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that Trent Jewett is "almost certain" to become the Mariners bench coach.

Jewett has been a coach in the Nationals organization since 2009, serving as the third base coach during the 2013 season. Prior to his time with the Nats, he was a long-time minor league manager and coach in the Pirates organization, where he worked with M's new skipper Lloyd McClendon. He had been seen as a potential successor to Davey Johnson, and did interview to become the Nationals manager this offseason.

The Mariners have officially announced the hiring of Lloyd McClendon as manager.

Athletics bench coach Chip Hale, Dodgers third base coach Tim Wallach and former major league infielder Joey Cora also received second interviews before the Mariners decided on McClendon. McClendon went 336–446 during his five years as the Pirates' manager, though he didn't have much talent on hand. He served as the Tigers' hitting coach for the last seven seasons.
