Indians: Terry Francona to be away from team for ‘at least couple more days’

CLEVELAND — The Indians announced Wednesday afternoon that Terry Francona will be away from the team for “at least a couple of more days.”

Chris Antonetti said Francona remains at the Cleveland Clinic, where he underwent follow-up tests on the Fourth of July.

Antonetti said there hasn’t been a discussion about a leave of absence for Francona, noting the Indians manager is itching to get back.

Brad Mills will continue to be the manager in the meantime.

Francona, 58, left last Monday’s game early when he started feeling lightheaded and his heart rate increased. He was taken to the Cleveland Clinic, where doctors ruled out any major health problems.
