CHICAGO (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the Chicago Cubs plan to interview former Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge for their opening.
The person spoke Friday on the condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search. It was not clear exactly when the interview will take place.
The Cubs are looking to replace Dale Sveum (swaym), who was 127-197 over two seasons.
Wedge went 213-273 in three years as Seattle's manager and announced at the end of the year that he would not return in 2014 because he considered the situation untenable.
Before that, he helped rebuild Cleveland into a contender. Wedge is 774-846 in 10 seasons.
He joins a list of candidates that includes A.J Hinch, Manny Acta, Rick Renteria and Dave Martinez.
