SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has undergone a heart procedure to insert two stents and will be hospitalized overnight.

The Giants released a statement late Thursday saying that the medical staff had been monitoring the manager's heart after he experienced some discomfort following a physical exam Wednesday.

"This afternoon, Bruce was admitted to Scottsdale Healthcare Medical Center where doctors performed a medical procedure to insert two stents," the team said. "He is resting comfortably and will be released tomorrow."

Bochy, in a text Thursday night to reporters, said that he expects to return to work after a few days.

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.
