Murphy, 61, was on the field when the heart attack started, though was able to make his way to the dugout to receive medical attention. He was transported to a local hospital and a stent was inserted.
"Froedtert [Hospital] had a team of cardiologists waiting and ultimately put in a stent. He is currently resting comfortably at Froedtert and should be released in a couple of days,” president of baseball operations David Stearns said, via USA Today. “This is an outcome where everyone did the right thing. Pat reported his symptoms, our medical staff immediately identified what was going on and the folks at Froedtert did an incredible job of getting him the care he needed."
Murphy is in his fifth season with the Brewers following a short stint coaching in the minor leagues. He briefly served as the San Diego Padres interim manager in 2015 after Bud Black was fired in the middle of the season.
Stearns said “the prognosis for recovery is good,” and that he expects Murphy to return to the team whenever he feels healthy enough to do so.
The Brewers were scheduled to take on the St. Louis Cardinals in Missouri this weekend, however those games were postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the Cardinals’ organization. Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain decided to opt out of the season shortly after that series was postponed, too.
"I don't think I envisioned any of this when I first woke up on Friday morning," Stearns said, via USA Today. "But that's baseball and that's life right now. We'll continue to take it day by day. The good news is Pat is resting comfortably and will recover, and will have the full support of the organization."
