NEW YORK (AP) -Yankees manager Joe Torre visited his hospitalized brother on Friday and said Frank Torre was doing well, three days after kidney transplant surgery.
After getting home at 6 a.m. following New York's doubleheader in Texas, Joe Torre went to New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia before going to Yankee Stadium for Friday night's game against Seattle.
``He's very uncomfortable but I guess that's not unusual,'' Joe Torre said. ``He felt it was more uncomfortable than the heart transplant. The doctor explained it to me today: When you're dealing with stomach, you're cutting more muscles than you would doing the heart, chest. Everything seems to be going well.''
Frank Torre, now 75, had a heart transplant during the 1996 World Series, watching from his hospital bed as Joe managed the Yankees to the title. Frank Torre spent seven seasons with the Milwaukee Braves and Philadelphia Phillies over a span from 1956-63.
