Guillen undergoes heart test

Postby WebHamster » Wed Mar 16, 2005 6:00 pm

Tucson, AZ (Sports Network) - Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen had a heart exam performed Wednesday at the University of Arizona Medical Center.

The cardiac catherization procedure was prompted after Guillen's spring physical and stress test. During the process, a thin plastic tube was inserted into Guillen's heart through a blood vessel to measure the levels of oxygen in the bloodstream and to check the heart and blood flow throughout the body.

Guillen, who missed Chicago's exhibition game on Wednesday, is expected to join the team on Friday. Third-base coach Joey Cora managed the team versus the Kansas City Royals.

The 41-year-old Guillen was named the 37th manager in White Sox history on November 3, 2003. The three-time All-Star played 16 seasons in the majors with the White Sox, Baltimore Orioles, Atlanta Braves and Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
