SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Mariners say manager Eric Wedge suffered a “very mild stroke,” that forced him to miss a three-game series against Cleveland, but is well enough to be released from the hospital.

The 45-year-old Wedge was hospitalized Monday when he complained about light-headedness during batting practice. He underwent a battery of tests and was sent home from the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

“After much testing the doctors believe he suffered a very mild stroke,” the team said in a statement. “The doctors expect that he will have a full and complete recovery.”

Wedge won’t be in uniform for the Mariners’ upcoming four-game series against Minnesota and he won’t go on the next road trip to Boston and Baltimore.

Bench coach Robby Thompson has been serving as acting manager.
