ATLANTA (AP) -Braves hitting coach Terry Pendleton was back at work Saturday, one day after an irregular heartbeat gave him a scare.
Pendleton was examined at Piedmont Hospital on Friday and has scheduled a follow-up ultrasound in a couple of weeks, he said.
The problem developed after Pendleton jogged for about 45 minutes.
``My heart was beating like I was running, and I had stopped running,'' he said. ``I waited about an hour and it still didn't catch up with itself. The trainer suggested I go to the emergency room.''
After his exam, Pendleton said he was told his symptoms were normal and common.
``They told me I'm fine,'' he said.
Pendleton returned from the exam in time to be on the bench for Friday night's game.
``It's something that happens at our age,'' said Pendleton, who turns 47 on Monday.
Pendleton said he walked for an hour before batting practice on Saturday. He supervised BP as usual.
Notes: Braves center fielder Andruw Jones was back in the lineup after leaving Friday night's game in the sixth inning with a right quadriceps injury. Jones reported discomfort in his leg above his knee after he broke from the batter's box in the second. He homered to start a six-run sixth and was lifted for a pinch-hitter later in the long inning. When asked how he felt Saturday, Jones laughed and said: ``It's not broken.''
