The New York Yankees have interviewed Eric Wedge for their open manager position.

Wedge has managed the Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners. He spent the last two seasons as a player development adviser with the Toronto Blue Jays.

"I'm humble and resilient," he said. "I think that you've got to have to have a certain level of toughness to be a big league manager and handle everything that goes along with that."

Joe Girardi was told last month that he was not being offered a contract after a decade with the Yankees.

Wedge is the second person to interview for the job following New York bench coach Rob Thomson. Aaron Boone has also been linked to the position.
