AAA Oklahoma City Skipper to Miss Start of the Season

According to a very brief post from Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle this afternoon, the Astros have announced that Tony DeFrancesco, Manager of the AAA Oklahoma City RedHawks has been diagnosed with cancer and will miss the beginning of the season. No further information has been released at this time.

UPDATE: It is now being reported that Tom Lawless will be interim manager of the OKC team while DeFrancesco undergoes treatment at M.D. Anderson Center Center in Houston. Treatment is expected to take five to six weeks. DeFrancesco is expected to make a full recovery and to be able to resume his duties as Manager of the RedHawks in mid-May. Good news indeed!
