The Philadelphia Phillies have provided a positive update on Charlie Manuel after the former manager suffered a stroke on Saturday.

"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 Phillies said in a statement Sunday.

"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."

The Phillies said Manuel, 79, was undergoing a medical procedure Saturday in Florida when he had the stroke. Physicians were able to remove a blood clot.

Under Manuel, the Phillies won five consecutive National League East titles from 2007 to 2011. They beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2008 World Series for the city's first major professional sports championship since 1983.
