The Cleveland Indians have fired Eric Wedge as manager.
The Indians are in the early stages of what general manager Mark Shapiro referred to as a “reloading” period, and the reload will extend to the managerial position and the coaching staff.
A 1:30 p.m. ET press conference was scheduled Wednesday at Progressive Field to announce that Wedge and his coaches have all been relieved of their duties. Wedge and his staff will stay aboard for the season’s final six games, including the four-game set in Boston this weekend.
