Terry Francona's name rising in Indians' manager search

Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported yesterday that major-league sources are saying Terry Francona is a candidate to manage the Cleveland Indians -- if he wants the job. Francona's impact on the job search is rising on Twitter today as more sources speak up.

Rosenthal reported Francona has had contact with the Indians, but the team must put together a deal lucrative enough to lure him away from his job as an ESPN analyst. Rosenthall also wrote the former Red Sox manager's friends are saying his first choice would be managing the Los Angeles Angels if Mike Scioscia is fired or leaves the position.

Francona may not be the Indians' first choice. Anthony Witrado of Sporting News reported Francona is on the Indians' list, but the job remains Sandy Alomar Jr.'s to lose.

The Indians started their search after firing Manny Acta and naming Alomar as acting manager on Thursday.
