Matt Loede

CLEVELAND - For the second time in less than two weeks, Indians manager Terry Francona has left the team's dugout during a game at Progressive Field due to falling ill.

STO Indians in-game reporter Andre Knott tweeted out that Francona left the dugout and will not return.

Francona left back on June 13th during a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers after he felt light-headed and spent a few hours at the Cleveland Clinic getting checked out.

It was determined that he was dehydrated and he was back in the dugout the next day.

Brad Mills, who filled in for Francona back on the 13th, again filled in on Monday night, as he came out to pull starter Carlos Carrasco in the 4th inning of the game against the Texas Rangers.

No word on if Francona had the same symptoms as back on June 13th or if it was some other type of illness that forced him out of the dugout Monday evening.
