Indians' Francona has heart procedure, will miss All-Star game

The Cleveland Indians have been without manager Terry Francona since he was admitted to Cleveland Clinic on Tuesday, with the skipper undergoing tests after experiencing a rapid heartbeat and dizziness.

The team said Major League Baseball has been informed of Francona's withdrawal from the All-Star Game in Miami.

Indians manager Terry Francona underwent a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat that sidelined him for a few games and will keep him away from the All-Star Game next week.

The Indians said Friday that Francona is resting comfortably in the hospital and is expected to be discharged in a "day or two".

As a result of Francona's medical procedure, Indians bench coach Brad Mills will manage the American League All-Stars Tuesday night according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

The 58-yer-old is expected to resume managing the team beginning Friday, July 14. Francona also missed a game in Washington last August after he experienced chest pains. Mills has been managing the club in Francona's recent absence and will continue to do so until he's able to rejoin the team.

He served as manager of the Red Sox from 2004-11, during which he had a.574 winning percentage.

"We talked about a wide variety of issues from different trade conversations we're having and things going on with the team, so he's actively engaged and actively itching to get back", Antonetti said.
