Jack Zduriencik to return in 2014

The Seattle Mariners have confirmed that general manager Jack Zduriencik will return for the 2014 season.

"Yes, Jack will be back," team president Chuck Armstrong told the Seattle Times.

Zduriencik has been with the Mariners, who are wrapping up their fourth consecutive losing season, since 2009. Seattle is 20 games below .500 entering Wednesday's game.

"You always operate on the basis that you're going to keep doing the job," Zduriecik told the Times. "That's what I've been doing."

Among decisions yet to be made is the status of manager Eric Wedge, whose contract runs out at the end of the season.
