Former Pirates manager Lloyd McClendon is getting a second chance.

The Seattle Mariners will hire McClendon as their manager, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

McClendon, 54, managed in Pittsburgh from 2001 through most of the 2005 season.

• The estranged wife of former Pirates pitcher Kris Benson will serve 15 years of probation in connection with aggravated assault and weapons charges in Georgia. Cobb County District Attorney spokeswoman Kim Isaza said Anna Benson, 37, pleaded guilty to being armed with a gun when she went to Kris Benson's suburban Atlanta home July 7 and demanded $30,000 from him. Isaza said Anna Benson was wearing a bullet-proof vest and carrying a metal baton.
