San Francisco (AFP) - San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy underwent a procedure to address an abnormal heart rhythm and will miss two games, the Major League Baseball team said Tuesday.

Bochy underwent the procedure, called an ablation, in San Diego and was resting at his home near the Southern California city.

Bochy managed the San Diego Padres for a dozen seasons before joining the Giants in 2007. He has managed San Francisco to World Series titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Bench coach Ron Wotus is serving as the Giants manager while Bochy is away.

This is the third straight year in which Bochy, 62, has dealt with heart trouble.

In February of 2015, Bochy had stents inserted. They are used to treat blocked or narrowing blood vessels.

Last August he missed a game after experiencing an irregular heartbeat.
