SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - 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 says. "He is resting comfortably and will be released tomorrow."

Bochy, who turns 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.
