SEATTLE (AP) -Yankees manager Joe Torre planned to return to New York to visit his brother, Frank, who remains hospitalized following a kidney transplant.
Torre said Sunday he intended to take advantage of the Yankees' off day on Monday and will fly back to New York to see his brother, who is at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia.
``He's being taken care of and he has good days and bad days,'' Torre said. ``It's going to be a long process, because of just the seriousness of the surgery and everything that goes with it.''
Frank Torre, who is 75, had the kidney operation May 1 and has been in and out of intensive care with pneumonia and an infection.
Joe Torre planned to rejoin the Yankees before Tuesday night's game at the Chicago White Sox.
``I think he was chosen out of our family to go through that stuff because they knew he could handle it,'' Torre said of his brother. ``I can hide here. This is what I do, and it's what he's interested in me doing on a daily basis. He still asks my wife how the road trip is going.''
Frank Torre 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 playing in the major leagues with the Milwaukee Braves and Philadelphia Phillies from 1956-63.
