AAfhC4y

 

 The Seattle Mariners have fired manager Lloyd McClendon after two seasons, with new general manager Jerry Dipoto choosing to bring in his own field boss to take over Seattle’s operations.

Seattle announced the decision on McClendon on Friday, less than a week after the Mariners concluded a disappointing 76-86 season. Seattle started the year with expectations of contenting in the AL West and reaching the postseason, but instead finished in fourth place in the division.

Dipoto was hired to replace Jack Zduriencik the final week of the regular season and said he would take his time evaluating whether McClendon would return. McClendon was under contract for the 2016 season.
