He could potentially return to work by the weekend. He had the operation on Wednesday at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Florida.
Boone will be hospitalized overnight.
“It sounds like it’s going to be a short-term thing,” Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman said. “I do applaud him for being very open and honest and sharing about the circumstances that he’s going through right now.”
Without Boone, bench coach Carlos Mendoza will serve as the interim manager. He was the acting manager on Wednesday night over the Toronto Blue Jays.
“I was told that he’s recovering well, that everything went as planned,” he said.
Mendoza has been employed by the Yankees for the past 13 seasons. He took over for Josh Bard, who served as the bench coach in 2020.
“The mindset doesn’t change,” Mendoza said. “We have a really good group of coaches here and really good personnel that are going to continue to get these guys ready to play the regular season.”
Boone is entering his fourth season with the Yankees. In three seasons, he has gone 236-148 in 348 games.
He has finished first or second in the American League East. In 2019, he guided the team to a first-place finish in the Division.
