SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has rejoined the team, three days after having a heart procedure.

Bochy returned Sunday to the World Series champions to supervise workouts for pitchers and catchers.

The 59-year-old Bochy had two stents placed near his heart on Thursday night. The hospital where the procedure was performed is right across the street from the spring training stadium used by the Giants.

"I couldn't feel any better," Bochy said. "I am grateful for the doctors and want to thank all the well-wishers who sent me messages."

Doctors had told Bochy to stay from the ballpark for a few days. He slipped back into his office on Saturday.

Bochy said he didn't feel good for much of the winter. After he took his annual spring physical on Wednesday, the team medical staff monitored him and suggested further tests on Thursday.
