By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona is not expected to come back this season. He has been away from the team for the past month.

The team just has several games left in this 60-game MLB coronavirus schedule. He has been away following a blood clot issue that needed surgery.

The Indians qualified for postseason play. At this time, it’s not clear if he will return to the team for the second stanza in the season.

However, he has entered into a postseason “bubble” in an attempt to potentially re-join his team. This is an attempt to keep all the team’s options open.

First base coach Sandy Alomar Jr. has been serving as interim manager with Francona sidelined.

Francona has been away from the team since August 21st when he had surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.

He has been the Tribe since the 2013 season. Before his operation, Francona was 16-9 in the first 25 games to begin the season.

Even though Alomar Jr. is the interim coach, all of the wins and losses have come under Francona. The team is presently 31-24.
