SEATTLE (www.incnow.tv) - The diagnosis for Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge appears to be more serious that originally thought.
Both The Seattle Times reporter Geoff Baker (@GBakerMariners) and Major League Baseball (@MLB) tweeted Wednesday that Wedge, 45, suffered a "mild stroke."
Wedge, a Fort Wayne native, had been hospitalized since Monday with what the franchise called dizzy spells.

The Mariners were taking batting practice Monday at Safeco Field when Wedge felt dizzy, Mariners general manager Jack Zdruincik says. Team doctors tended to Wedge after players helped him off the field, and Wedge was eventually taken to a hospital.
Wedge was expected to return to the dugout Tuesday. Now there is no timetable on his return.

"We were hoping he'd get out right away," Thompson said after Wednesday night's game. "Under these circumstances and all the testing he's been through, it's taken a little longer."
Wedge was released from a hospital Wednesday afternoon, and is resting at home, Major League Baseball says.
