PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says his long-term prognosis is good as he undergoes cancer treatment.
At the Mets' training complex ahead of the start of spring-training workouts, the 68-year-old said Wednesday ''I feel very well.''
Alderson says ''I will disappear from here a couple of times during spring training, just to go back to New York for some additional treatment. Otherwise I should be here and 100 percent and ready to go.''
Alderson said he was diagnosed ''four or five'' days after the Mets clinched the NL East title on Sept. 26 at Cincinnati.
