McClendon to be named Seattle Mariners Manager

Lloyd McClendon
Reports out of the Pacific Northwest have been confirmed by multiple sources, former Tigers hitting coach Lloyd McClendon will be named manager of the Seattle Mariners.

There had been no confirmation that McClendon would have been retained by Brad Ausmus in some capacity for the 2014 season, but even if Ausmus had wanted McClendon to join Gene Lamont, on his staff, the point becomes moot. McClendon had interviewed for the Tigers opening, and according to Dave Dombrowski, he was the first person that DD called when the decision was made to hire Ausmus instead.

Congrats to Lloyd on this opportunity.
