Trey Mancini, the Baltimore Orioles first baseman who has been absent from camp for a medical issue that has been shrouded in mystery, announced that today he had successful surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his colon. The tumor was apparently discovered last week during a colonoscopy.

Mancini, who turns 28 next week, left camp for what was described as a non-playing-related medical issue, and the words of support and concern from his teammates indicated it was fairly serious. Hopefully, the early detection and successful surgery has nipped this in the bud and will allow Mancini to get a clean bill of health.
