Eric Wedge Is Close To Returning From Stroke

Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge has been away from the team since suffering a minor stroke on July 22, but interim manager Robby Thompson said yesterday that Wedge is close to returning.

Thompson told Greg Johns of MLB.com that Wedge is hoping to return during the next homestand, which begins on August 23:

Hes doing really good. Hes doing outstanding. I talked to him yesterday. Hes passing everything with flying colors, hes feeling much better. And theres a real good chance that hell rejoin us when we get back. Thats kind of where it stands right now.
