Indians manager Terry Francona will not be in the dugout Tuesday night against the Nationals.

Francona began experiencing chest pains during his pregame media session and will be monitored overnight by medical professionals. Indians bench coach Brad Mills is going to fill in at manager for the Tribe on Tuesday at Nationals Park. Look for an update on Tito on Wednesday morning. He was apparently feeling better by first pitch.

The Indians have promoted Chris Antonetti to president of baseball operations.

The new front office structure comes on the heels of Mark Shapiro taking an opportunity with the Blue Jays. Mike Chernoff has been promoted to general manager and Derek Falvey will serve as assistant general manager.

Indians signed manager Terry Francona to a two-year contract extension through 2018.

The deal also includes club options for 2019 and 2020. Francona owns a 177-147 (.546) record over his first two seasons in Cleveland (including a Wild Card Game appearance in 2013) and the Indians understandably want to keep him around for the long haul.

The BBWAA has announced Terry Francona as the 2013 American League Manager of the Year.

Francona edged out John Farrell, receiving 16 first-place votes to Farrell's 12. Most had Farrell as the favorite, but Tito is certainly a deserving winner, leading the Indians to a Wild Card spot after entering the season with no playoff expectations. He's won two World Series titles, but this is his first Manager of the Year award.

Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said the club has enough assets to be a player in free agency this winter.

Cleveland's 23rd-ranked payroll of $73,724,300 in 2013 will assuredly rise next season, as the club's revenue rose 20-percent this year. "I'm confident we'll have the resources to building a contending team for next year," Antonetti said. "I think we'll be aggressive." Antonetti certainly has his work cut out for him if he wants the Indians to play more than 162 games again. Starters Ubaldo Jimenez and Scott Kazmir are both free agents, and the long-term status of relievers Chris Perez and Joe Smith and outfielder Drew Stubbs are up in the air. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera could be traded, a move that could save money and restock the farm system. If Antonetti decides to walk down that road, Mike Aviles would likely enter the starting lineup until stud shortstop prospect Francisco Lindor is ready.

Terry Francona was ejected from Saturday's game against the Tigers in the top of the eighth inning for arguing with home plate umpire Andy Fletcher.

Francona got between Fletcher and Nick Swisher, who had taken offense to a called third strike on Michael Brantley to end the inning. It marked the second time this season that Francona had been tossed from a game.
