Terry Francona returning to manage Indians after week of rest

Terry Francona will return to manage the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday after dealing with a gastrointestinal condition.

Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona will return to the team Tuesday after missing more than a week so he could rest while dealing with a gastrointestinal condition.

The team says Francona will be in the dugout when the Indians open a two-game home series against the Chicago Cubs.

Francona has missed Cleveland’s past eight games with the gastrointestinal issue, which has bothered him since spring training. The 61-year-old skipped the Indians’ weekend trip to Chicago to get extra rest. Francona is in his eighth season with Cleveland.
