Giants' Bruce Bochy out of hospital

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is "all good" one day after a heart procedure to insert two stents.

Bochy, who was released from the hospital Friday, said in a text to ESPN MLB Insider Buster Olney that he expects to return to work Sunday.

"He's doing great," Brett Bochy, his son, said. "It's a little scary to go to the hospital, but he's in good hands here. They noticed something after his physical early so it was caught early, and he's feeling great now."

The Giants said Thursday the team's medical staff had been monitoring the manager's heart after he experienced discomfort following a physical exam Wednesday, when the World Series champions reported to spring training.

"He couldn't be in better spirits," Brett Bochy said. "He's ready to get back out. He wants to be back out (on the field) today, but they're keeping him out just for precautionary reasons."

Bochy, who will turn 60 in April, has led the Giants to three World Series titles in the past five seasons -- in 2010, '12 and last year. He came to the Giants from the NL West rival San Diego Padres before the 2007 season. In 20 years as a manager, he has a 1,618-1,604 record.

Brett Bochy said his father doesn't have a history of heart problems, but the manager's father died of a heart attack and Bruce Bochy has always been monitored because of that.

"It's scary anytime you hear anything involving someone's heart," Giants catcher Buster Posey said. "Happy to hear that he's doing well."
