Former Houston Astros manager Brad Mills is expected to join Terry Francona on the Cleveland Indians coaching staff, according to Paul Hoynes of The Plain Dealer.

The Indians finished in fourth place in the American League Central with a record of 68-94, 25 games behind the first place Detroit Tigers.

Cleveland hired former Red Sox Manager Terry Francona at the conclusion of the 2012 season. Francona has managed 12 seasons in the majors and has a 1,029-915 career record. He also won two World Series titles with the Boston Red Sox.
