Sandy Alomar expected back on Terry Francona's Indians staff

The Cleveland Indians hired Terry Francona as their new manager, passing over longtime Indian and then-interim manager Sandy Alomar. However, it would seem that there's a good chance Alomar returns to the team next year, according to Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer.

"I'm a professional with one more year on my contract," said Alomar in a text. "I expect to come back. Terry said he wants me on the staff."

Alomar served as the Indians' bench coach this past season before Manny Acta was fired. It's expected that he would return to that position after managing the team for the final six games of the season. All the coaches on the previous staff will reportedly receive consideration from Francona on whether they're brought back.

It's possible that Alomar could be hired to manage another team this offseason. He was interviewed by the Red Sox last year before they hired Bobby Valentine, and many expect Colorado to part ways with Jim Tracy soon.
