Yankees Manager Aaron Boone Stepping Away to Receive Pacemaker

Chicago Cubs

Although you do brace yourself for surprising and concerning medical news at the start of Spring Training, you are usually thinking about pitcher arm injuries popping up – not a surprise announcement about the manager.

The Yankees have announced that manager Aaron Boone is stepping away because he will be undergoing surgery to receive a pacemaker:

Hopefully the procedure goes smoothly and alleviates whatever symptoms or concerns Boone was facing with respect to his heart. Sometimes I wonder if the standard physicals that players and coaches and managers often receive at the start of Spring Training is a good opportunity to catch issues that might not otherwise be caught. I don’t know if that’s the case here, but either way, it’s good that Boone is getting this done. All the best to him.
