New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone was discharged from St. Joseph’s Hospital on Thursday, a day after having a pacemaker installed.
Boone is on a leave of absence from the Yankees and intends to return to work in a few days.
The 47-year-old is entering his fourth season as Yankees manager. He had open-heart surgery in 2009.
Bench coach Carlos Mendoza took over as acting manager for Wednesday night’s 4-1 win over Toronto in Tampa and Thursday's 15-0 loss to Philadelphia in Clearwater.
"First question was how'd the boys look?: says Mendoza when he called Boone. "I was like no, no, how are you feeling? He was like, 'I feel great.'  He's in the hospital in bed, out of surgery and he just wants to know what's going on here with our guys."
