The Washington Nationals will hire Matt Williams as their new manager, reported Friday.

Williams, 47, replaces Davey Johnson, who retired at the end of the regular season. It is Williams' first managerial job at any level. He joined the Arizona Diamondbacks' coaching staff in 2010 as a first-base coach but was most recently the third-base coach.

• A person familiar with the situation said the Cubs plan to interview former Mariners manager Eric Wedge for their opening. Wedge went 213-273 in three years as Seattle's manager.
