UPDATE: It’s official. Jewett is reuniting with McClendon on Seattle’s bench.

==========

Nationals third base coach Trent Jewett interviewed to replace Davey Johnson as manager last month, but the job went to Matt Williams instead and now it sounds like Jewett is likely leaving the organization instead of sticking around to be part of Williams’ staff.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Nationals have granted the Mariners permission to interview Jewett for their bench coach job under new manager Lloyd McClendon.

Jewett was McClendon’s third base coach with the Pirates in the early 2000s, so they’re getting the band back together.
