Saying only that he was "feeling ill," the Giants on Monday announced that manager Bruce Bochy has been hospitalized in Miami and will be kept overnight for observation. The team's statement read in full:

"This morning, Giants Manager Bruce Bochy was admitted to the University of Miami Hospital after feeling ill. He is being checked at the hospital and will be monitored overnight. He is resting comfortably and is expected to return tomorrow. Bench coach Ron Wotus will serve as manager tonight for the Giants."

As the San Francisco Chronicle notes, Bochy in February of last year had two stents placed in his heart, but it's not known whether his current hospitalization is related to that. It does seem, however, that the Giants don't expect Bochy's absence to be a long-term one:

Bochy, 61, is in his 22nd season as a major-league manager and 10th with the Giants. He presently has the Giants in first place in the NL West and is trying to guide them to the World Series title for the fourth time.
