BALTIMORE, Md. (WDVM) — In March, Baltimore Orioles outfielder Trey Mancini left spring training for unspecified reasons, later to be revealed as a stage 3 colon cancer diagnosis.
Mancini just recently opened up about his diagnosis in a Players Tribune article titled “I Am So Lucky,” where he discusses how he felt different at spring training but just thought it was old age.
The 28-year-old’s absence left fans wondering if they would ever see him play again.
In a Zoom conference on Wednesday, Mancini opened up about why he waited over a month to open up about his diagnosis and said that he plans on making a full recovery.
