Phillies statement:


The Phillies have been informed that while undergoing a medical procedure today in a Florida hospital, Charlie Manuel suffered a stroke. The hospital was able to attend to Charlie immediately and subsequently remove a blood clot. The next 24 hours will be crucial to his recovery, and Charlie’s family asks that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers at this time.

There’s very little information out there, though obviously it’s good that doctors were right there and able to address this on the spot. We’ll update the story if/when more details become available. Keep Charlie in your thoughts.

EDIT – here’s an update from the Phils:

“This morning, the Phillies received a positive update from Charlie Manuel’s wife, Missy. Charlie has made progress over the past 12 hours and his doctors are encouraged. The Manuel family is very appreciative for every post on social media. Charlie feels the love from his Phillies family and fans. Missy believes the incredible support is aiding in his recovery.”
