Nationals pitching coach Steve McCatty missed Sunday’s game and spent last night in the hospital because of an irregular heart beat and high blood pressure.
Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports that McCatty arrived for work Sunday morning, but complained of symptoms and was taken the hospital, although an ambulance was not required and he’s expected to fly to Detroit to join the team in time for Tuesday’s game.
Manager Davey Johnson had some good-spirited quotes after the game, noting that McCatty was “his usual grumpy self” when they chatted and “hoping that [Wilson Ramos'] grand slam would shock him right out of that atrial fibrillation.”
