Trey Mancini of the o’s had surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his colon. He’s only 27.  :shock:
you have got to hope that this was picked up on a physical connected to his contract rather than when he started showing signs like bloody stools.  I'm not sure if I even had a test for colon issues (stool sample) before I was 40.

The news article I saw said it was picked up in a colonoscopy but at his age he must’ve have some kind of symptoms to warrant such a test.

Very unfortunate. Hope he gets well soon.

Yeah, that's pretty rough.    Stay in the fight.

well, if you figure the season has a decent chance of not being played, then it is a good move.  Heck, if it is delayed to June, then it is 50+ games or 10 starts fewer than he would have missed otherwise.  But if he had gotten it last August, he might have been around if there are playoffs.

Best-case scenario IMO is a half-season of baseball where they expand the playoffs. But I don't think that's likely. Then again, if the country still can't function by July, we have bigger problems.

this is kind of neat.  Fenway was notorious for cramped clubhouses.  With the park empty, they're using all of the space to create distance between players.   In lieu of the clubhouse, players dress in the suites.  The under the bleacher area and the concession area are now workout areas and used by the trainers.  If you are familiar with Fenway, there are some interesting pictures.  They show Michael Chavis walking into the suite he shares with Alex Verdugo.
