NEW YORK (AP) Yankees manager Aaron Boone took a leave of absence from the team to get a pacemaker and intends to return to work in a few days.
New York said the procedure took place Wednesday at St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, Florida, and went as expected. Boone remained hospitalized overnight.
"It sounds like it's going to be a short-term thing," general manager Brian Cashman said. "I do applaud him for being very open and honest and sharing about the circumstances that he's going through right now."
