Indians manager Terry Francona left games twice last month due to dizziness and shortness of breath. He was checked out on both occasions and no serious medical issues were discovered. That’s not the end of the story, however.
Yesterday Indians president Chris Antonetti told reporters that Francona is undergoing tests at Cleveland Clinic and that he would will not manage the team in their game against the Padres. And he did not. Antonetti said that “they’re in the process of trying to narrow down exactly what’s been causing his symptoms.” Francona was at the ballpark before the game yesterday, however, so his non-work routine is relatively uninterrupted.
It’s unclear if Francona will be back tonight. We’ll know around the time clubhouses open in a few hours.
