Sources tell FoxSports.com reporter Ken Rosenthal that Terry Francona has been selected to be the next manager of the Cleveland Indians and that an announcement will come Monday.

The Globe had previously reported that Francona and incumbent bench coach Sandy Alomar Jr. were the two candidates for the job.

Francona was with Cleveland in 2001 as a special assistant to general manager Mark Shapiro, who is now the team president. He also is close to GM Chris Antonetti. Francona's father, Tito, played for the Indians from 1959-64.

Francona has worked for ESPN since leaving the Red Sox a year ago.
