The Seattle Mariners have hired Lloyd McClendon as the club's new manager, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Seattle began their search for a new skipper after previous manager Eric Wedge announced that he would not be returning next season due to a rift with the team's front office. McClendon has served as the Detroit Tigers' hitting coach since 2007 and had previously managed the Pittsburgh Pirates from 2001 until 2005, where he had a .430 win percentage.
