Indians bench coach Brad Mills, who has filled in as Cleveland’s interim manager in Francona’s absence, will take his place on the AL All-Star squad.
It goes without saying that we’re all wishing Francona well as he recovers from this unfortunate setback. We’re looking forward to seeing him return to the dugout chewing a massive wad of Dubble Bubble as soon as possible.
