Indians fire manager Eric Wedge

Posted:

CLEVELAND (KWWL) - The Cleveland Indians have fired manager Eric Wedge in the final days of a disastrous season.

Wedge guided the Indians to one playoff appearance in seven seasons, and this year the club fell out of contention early and is currently one game out of last place in the AL Central.

The Indians have scheduled a Wednesday afternoon news conference at Progressive Field to announce Wedge's dismissal.

Wedge will finish out the season as manager. Cleveland's coaching staff has also been informed it will not be retained, but some of the staff could be re-hired by the Indians' next manager.
