Indians manager Terry Francona underwent a “catheter ablation procedure” on his heart to correct an irregular heartbeat, according to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal. Francona will not manage the American League in the All-Star Game on Tuesday, but will be discharged from the hospital this weekend and will return to managing Cleveland next Friday.
Francona has missed a handful of recent games with health issues and has undergone tests at the Cleveland Clinic this week. The two-time World Series champion, 58, has felt light-headed and has dealt with an elevated heart rate in recent weeks.
Mills, 60, was the manager of the Astros from 2010 to 2012, posting a 171-274 record in that span. He has coached alongside Francona with the Phillies (1997-00), Red Sox (2004-09) and Indians (2013-present).
