Tools

CLEVELAND (AP) — Former Boston manager Terry Francona will interview with the Cleveland Indians on Friday.

Francona's meeting will come one day after interim manager Sandy Alomar Jr. has his formal interview with general manager Chris Antonetti about becoming the replacement for Manny Acta, who was dismissed last week with six games left in the season. Alomar and Francona are the only confirmed candidates for the Indians' managerial opening. The Indians, who collapsed from contention in August, are 2-3 under Alomar, a six-time All-Star catcher with Cleveland.

Francona has been working as an analyst for ESPN. He led the Red Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007. He was a special assistant in Cleveland's front office in 2001.

Last week, Francona told the AP he would welcome a chance to work again with Antonetti and team president Mark Shapiro.
