    KANSAS CITY -- Bruce Bochy did not make the return trip to Kansas City with the Giants. 

    The team announced Tuesday that Bochy underwent a minor ablation procedure in the morning to alleviate discomfort related to an atrial flutter, which is an abnormal heart rhythm.

    Bochy has had several heart-related issues in recent years. Last season, he was hospitalized in Miami with an irregular heartbeat. He had two stents inserted two years ago during spring training. 

    The Giants announced that the procedure was performed in San Diego, where Bochy lives. He was said to be resting comfortably at his home. Bochy is expected to join the team on Friday in Denver. 

    Bench coach Ron Wotus will manage the Giants for the two games at Kauffman Stadium.
