New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone in headline on Wednesday On the same day, when the club announced that it would take leave to receive a pacemaker at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Florida.
Around Associated Press (H / t ESPN), Boone told reporters on Friday that he was fired on Thursday and would like to return to the club at some point this weekend.
In fact, the manager celebrating his 48th birthday this Tuesday would have been with the team on Friday against the Detroit Tigers without MLB’s COVID-19 protocol.
“I think I’m ready to go back to the dugout,” Boone said.
He contacted a cardiologist after feeling dizzy at some point during the off-season, adding that he was eventually determined to be suffering from a low heart rate. He had previously undergone open heart surgery in 2009 and said on Friday that he had already improved with a pacemaker.
“You have your morning coffee, today’s morning coffee really worked,” he explained. “I and my new companion are doing very well.”
Boone accepted the Yankees’ job following the 2017 season, setting a record of 236-148 for three years. He has not yet led the Bronx bomber to the World Series.
