Bruce Bochy's minor offseason heart procedure went as planned, the team announced Friday afternoon.
In a message passed along to beat reporters, Bochy said "the procedure went extremely well and I'm feeling better. I'm grateful for the doctors and want to thank everyone who has reached out with well wishes."
Bochy, 62, had an ablation procedure to help him deal with heart issues that have plagued him in recent years. The operation was his second of the year, but it was considered minor enough that it could be pushed back to the end of the season.
Cleveland's Terry Francona had a similar procedure this year and returned to manage, and Bochy has left no doubt about his future.
"I don't want anyone to think this has an effect on my work, or ability to work," Bochy said last week. "This is something that is not uncommon."
