Terry Francona continues to undergo tests at the Cleveland Clinic

4 Comments

Indians manager Terry Francona continues to undergo tests at the Cleveland Clinic in the wake of a series of episodes in which he has experienced dizziness and an elevated heart rate.

While he continues to be absent from Indians games, he may also have to miss the All-Star Game next week, which he is slated to manage thanks to the Indians winning the pennant last year. At the moment it is unclear when he’ll be discharged. Indians president Chris Antonetti told reporters yesterday that Francona will miss “at least a couple more days.”

Brad Mills has been managing the Tribe in Francona’s absence. It’s not clear who will manage the AL All-Star team if Francona cannot. Francona had previously named the entire Indians coaching staff to the All-Star Game, but Rays manager Kevin Cash — a former Indians coach and friend of Francona’s — is on the staff as well.
