Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona felt ill late in last night’s loss to the Dodgers and did not meet with reporters afterward. Bench coach Brad Mills filled in for Francona in the ninth inning and for his postgame news conference.

A team spokesman says Francona is feeling better today, however, and is expected back in the dugout for tonight’s game against the Dodgers.

Francona has had a handful of minor health problems in recent years, missing a game last season in Washington because of chest pains. It’s good to hear that this all seems to be a minor issue.
