He's expected to make a full recovery and will be discharged within the next day or two. 

The 58-yer-old is expected to resume managing the team beginning Friday, July 14. However, he will not manage the All-Star Game in Miami on July 11. 

The bench coach, Brad Mills has been managing the team while Francona's been gone.
