Mariners manager Eric Wedge was released from the hospital Wednesday, two days after suffering what doctors believe was a mild stroke that caused him to experience dizzy spells.

General manager Jack Zduriencik told reporters after Wednesday's 10-1 loss to Cleveland that Wedge is feeling well and that he's expected to make a full recovery but that he won't manage the team during its upcoming series against Minnesota or the roadtrip to Boston and Baltimore that follows.

"We expect him to be back sooner than later. He's excited. He sounds normal. I talked to him and he sounds like everything is fine and he's ready to roll, but again we're going to err on the side of caution," Zduriencik said. "I think the common-sense thing is just to have Eric rest and it makes sense that he won't take this trip to the East Coast. While we're gone he'll be evaluated and we'll see where we stand when we come back."

Bench coach Robby Thompson will continue to manage the team in Wedge's absence.
