John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Yankees sound encouraged that manager Aaron Boone could make a quick return to the team after receiving a pacemaker.

According to Yankees GM Brian Cashman, Boone’s leave of absence is expected to be short-term, and he could even return to spring training by the end of the week.

Boone described the symptoms that led to his decision to take a leave of absence in the team’s earlier statement.

Thankfully, this seems like a fairly routine procedure and indicates a quick return time. Based on this, it sounds like Boone expects to be back and ready to manage well before Opening Day.
