CINCINNATI (AP) - Dusty Baker won’t manage the Cincinnati Reds until the final series in St. Louis, giving him time to recover from an irregular heartbeat that left him hospitalized last week.

Baker met with owner Bob Castellini and his team on Tuesday before a game against the Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier said he’ll manage the final three home games against Milwaukee and three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, with Baker taking over for the last three games next week.

The 63-year-old manager was hospitalized in Chicago last Wednesday for an irregular heartbeat, a problem he’s had for a while. He was in the hospital for four days, missing the Reds‘ 6-0 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night that clinched the NL Central title.
