Note: Dan Warthen released from hospital, back with the Mets
Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen was admitted to an Atlanta hospital after suffering from an accelerated heartbeat on Thursday afternoon.
He spent the night in the hospital as a precaution, but he has rejoined the team and will serve as the club’s pitching coach on Friday night against the Braves.
A team spokesperson said Warthen’s accelerated heartbeat corrected itself overnight.
Warthen has been the pitching coach for the Mets since June, 2008 when he replaced Rick Peterson.
