Terry Francona undergoes heart procedure, out for All-Star Game

Cleveland Indians skipper Terry Francona will not manage in the All-Star Game after undergoing a heart procedure on Thursday, the team announced.

Francona underwent a cardiac ablation procedure for an irregular heartbeat, the Indians said in a statement, and is resting at the Cleveland Clinic.

“Terry is expected to make a full recovery and will be discharged within the next day or two,” the Indians said. “It is expected he will resume managing the team beginning Friday, July 14 and Major League Baseball has been informed he will not manage the All-Star Game in Miami.”

Get well soon, Tito.
