SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The Giants released a statement Thursday night after manager Bruce Bochy was admitted to a local hospital. Here is the statement from the team:
"Following his physical yesterday, the Giants medical staff was monitoring Bruce Bochy's heart after he experienced some discomfort. This afternoon, Bruce was admitted to Scottsdale Healthcare Medical Center where doctors performed a medical procedure to insert two stents. He is resting comfortably and will be released tomorrow."
A team official said that while Bochy is unlikely to be at the park Friday, all signs point to him being fine after the health scare. Bochy showed no clear signs of the discomfort on the first day of workouts, monitoring pitchers on the bullpen mounds and then standing behind the cage as the catchers took batting practice. At one point, he stepped into the batter's box to give Madison Bumgarner a different look as the lefty threw a bullpen session. Bochy later joked that Bumgarner was throwing cutters that fit his bat speed. He spoke to reporters at length after the workout and hung around for another 10 extra minutes to joke about the "Best Looking Manager" rankings one website put out last year.
