CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Cleveland Indians’ Manager Terry Francona will return to the dugout Tuesday evening when the Tribe opens a two-game series against the Cubs at Progressive Field.
The 61-year old missed more than a week dealing with a gastrointestinal issue, missing a total of eight games.
Sandy Alomar Junior has served as acting manager in Francona’s absence.
So far this season, the Indians have posted a record of 10-7 overall. Cleveland currently sits in second place tie with Minnesota in the American League Central, 1/2 game in back of the first-place Chicago White Sox.
