1B,LF,RF - BAL - IL60
The Orioles placed Trey Mancini on the 60-day IL.
Mancini had a malignant tumor removed from his colon back in March and will sit out the 2020 season. The 28-year-old hit 35 homers with a near .900 OPS in 2019. Baltimore will surely miss his potent bat this year.
Trey Mancini wrote Tuesday in the Players' Tribune that his colon cancer is Stage 3 and he is unlikely to be able to play in 2020.
Mancini stated that he will be undergo chemotherapy for six months, so it's understandable that he has almost no chance of playing in 2020. For Mancini, the only thing fantasy owners can do is wish him well. Although he won't contribute this year for purposes of redraft leagues, assuming he recovers fully, the illness and treatment should hopefully have little impact on his performance in 2021. As for this year, DJ Stewart should see the majority of time in right field for the Orioles, though he's not worth a look in anything outside of AL-only leagues.
GM Mike Elias told reporters that Trey Mancini is progressing well, but will be out for months, not weeks. There is no distinct timetable to report.
It was initially thought that Mancini would be ready for Opening Day, whenever it was going to be scheduled. Now, Mancini figures to move back down draft boards as a result.
Orioles GM Mike Elias told reporters Thursday that Trey Mancini (tumor) has been released from the hospital.
Mancini had a malignant tumor removed from his colon on Thursday. The 28-year-old still has to undergo further testing but this is certainly good news. Even if we knew a start date for the MLB season we wouldn't yet have a timetable on when Mancini would be game-ready.
Trey Mancini underwent a successful surgery that removed a malignant tumor from his colon on Thursday.
It was announced earlier this week that Mancini would undergo an "imminent non-baseball procedure". The Orioles kept things quiet at the time out of respect for his privacy and now we know why. Mancini will be sidelined from baseball activities until the surgery results are available in about a week.
