CLEVELAND — Indians manager Terry Francona has been released from the hospital after undergoing a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.
Francona was discharged from the Cleveland Clinic and is resting at his downtown Cleveland residence. The 58-year-old manager had a cardiac ablation Thursday after experiencing dizziness and an accelerated heart rate the last month.
He was admitted on Tuesday after doctors detected an abnormality from the readings of a heart monitor he had been wearing for several weeks.
Francona will skip next week’s All-Star Game in Miami. He is expected to rejoin the Indians and assume his usual duties when the team opens a three-game series in Oakland on July 14.
The Indians went 2-2 while Francona was hospitalized. There was relief among the players when they learned Francona’s medical issue had been identified and treated.
Francona is in his fifth season with Cleveland.
