New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone is ready to make his return to the dugout following surgery to put in a pacemaker, saying that he is feeling better and hoping to make his return on Sunday.

“I think I’m ready to be back in the dugout” Boone said during a news conference on Friday (h/t ESPN). Boone added that he would have been back with the team on Friday if it wasn’t for coronavirus protocols.

Boone described feeling light-headed at times during the offseason which led him to reaching out to a cardiologist for testing, which determined the Boone had a low heart rate.

“Energy level, not myself. I felt like I had to reach for it every day in a way,” Boone said, adding that he has felt marked improvement since the procedure that took place on Wednesday of this week.

“You have your morning coffee, today’s morning coffee really worked,” he said. “Me and my new buddy are doing quite well.”
