Terry Francona to be Named Cleveland Indians Manager


Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona has already made his way back to baseball after a year working for ESPN.

Francona will be named manager of the Cleveland Indians on Monday.

Francona was selected over Indians bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr., who has been a managerial candidate the last couple years in Toronto (2010) and Boston (2011). He may reemerge as a candidate to replace the fired Bobby Valentine with the Red Sox, or replace John Farrell, if the Blue Jays trade him away to Boston. reports that Alomar was offered a spot on Francona’s staff, but he could look elsewhere to become a manager.

The Red Sox will play at Cleveland from April 16-18 and will host the Indians May 23-26.

Bobby Valentine could replace Francona at ESPN. Francona replaced Valentine when he was named Sox manager last year.
