Baltimore Orioles’ outfielder Trey Mancini has made it known he is suffering from Stage 3 Colon Cancer and doubts he will return this year if the MLB season resumes. Mancini made the announcement in The Players Tribune. "I'm getting chemo at a hospital in Baltimore, and I have to drive up there alone," he wrote. "Nobody is allowed to come in with me, and that's completely fine by me. I don't want anybody else being put at risk -- people that are close to me and that I love, and other people in the hospital.” He was one of the few bright spots for the Orioles last season, hitting .291 with 35 home runs and 97 RBIs. Sports illustrated wishes all the best for Mancini and his family on his road to recovery.
