Sounds manager back on the job after being hospitalized

Nashville Sounds manager Mike Guerrero has been cleared to rejoin the team a day after he was hospitalized.

Guerrero, 45, fainted in the dugout during the first inning of Sunday’s game against the Omaha Stormchasers in Omaha, Neb.

According to the Associated Press, it was 75 degrees at the time Guerrero fainted. He was taken to a local hospital for “precautionary measures,” and was evaluated and released later Sunday night, Sounds assistant general manager Doug Scopel said on Monday morning.

“He will be back working as Sounds manager [Monday] during batting practice and the game,” Scopel said. “Nothing other than just a quick evaluation at the advice of the EMTs that were on site. They’d always want to try to be safe than sorry in situations like that. Whenever something like that happens you never know what it might be. So they went in and just ran some routine tests. He was in and out of the hospital pretty quick from what I understand.”

The Sounds finish a four-game series in Omaha on Monday night. They return to Nashville on Tuesday for an eight-game home stand against the Las Vegas 51s (New York Mets) and Tucson Padres (San Diego).

Guerrero is in his second year as the manager for the Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. He has spent the last 18 years as a minor league manager for the Brewers organization, most recently headed up the club’s Double-A team in Huntsville, Ala., from 2010-11.

The Sounds have the worst record in the Pacific Coast League at 38-71.

Manager may have fainted in disbelief that the Sounds finally executed a hit-and-run.
