At this point, it’s not known when Francona, a two-time World Series winner, will return. Francona has already missed 14 games this season with health issues and recently revealed he’s had numerous surgeries in the past year for the condition.NASCAR-DOVERJohnson makes last-gasp playoff push in final year at DoverDOVER, Del.

It’s a well-timed pause in the season for the Yankees, who placed shortstop Gleyber Torres and left-hander James Paxton on their crowded injured list Friday. New York was already without star hitters Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and DJ LeMahieu (leh-MAY’-hyoo), as well as left-hander Zack Britton, right-hander Tommy Kahnle and backup catcher Kyle Higashioka. Judge is expected to be activated Saturday after recovering from a strained right calf.In other MLB news: Johnson has a record 11 victories at the Delaware track, a staggering total that started in 2002 and stretched to June 2017, a win that has stood for three-plus years as his last in NASCAR. With Dover moving one of its two scheduled NASCAR race weekends to Nashville Superspeedway next season, Johnson’s mark seems unbreakable. But his farewell season could end in tatters if he’s racing out the string with nothing at stake and no fans roaring from the stands.Dover, where Johnson has led 3,110 laps, is no sure shot these days for the No. 48 team. Johnson has lost his magic touch on the Monster Mile with two finishes of 14th or worse in the last three races.Without a win, his playoff chances hang by a thread. Johnson is 25 points outside the playoff cutline with two Dover races and next week’s regular-season finale at Daytona International Speedway left to end his final full NASCAR season in the championship hunt.NASCAR-NASHVILLE PRESIDENT Moses named 1st Black track president in NASCAR historyDOVER, Del.
