Moreno out as AquaSox manager

Moreno, who was suspended recently for undisclosed reasons, and the M’s mutually agreed to part ways.

Jose Moreno agreed to mutually part ways with the Seattle Mariners organization and is no longer the Everett AquaSox manager, according to a statement from the team.

“The Seattle Mariners wish to thank Jose for sharing his talent and for his meaningful contributions during his 19 years of service with the organization,” the statement read.

Lookout Landing, a Mariners blog, first reported Moreno was leaving his manager duties in Everett.

Moreno was recently suspended one week by the Mariners organization for undisclosed reasons. That suspension ended on Tuesday, but Moreno never returned to the AquaSox.

Moreno was in his third straight season, fifth overall, at the helm in Everett and was 155-149 as the AquaSox manager entering this season. This was Moreno’s 19th season in the Mariners’ organization and 14th as a manager.

Mariners minor league field coordinator Carson Vitale, who filled in for Everett during Moreno’s suspension, will continue to manage the AquaSox on an interim basis until a permanent replacement for Moreno is announced, according to the statement.
