Seattle might be looking to poach a new manager from a division rival, as Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Mariners are interviewing A’s bench coach Chip Hale today as a potential replacement for Eric Wedge.
Hale has coached on Bob Melvin’s staffs in both Arizona and Oakland, and also managed at Triple-A for the Diamondbacks. He’s been a candidate for a few jobs in recent years, including the Mets before they chose Terry Collins.
