Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he would undergo an ablation procedure early next week to treat an atrial fibrillation – his second heart procedure this year and his third in the past three seasons.

The procedure was scheduled even before Bochy had another ablation, or burning of heart tissue, to treat an atrial flutter in April.

Bochy is expected to rest for a week but said he would be back in San Francisco for organizational meetings on Oct. 23. He also still plans to travel to the Dominican Republic to visit the Giants’ academy there and to Costa Rica for a fishing trip in the coming weeks.
