BALTIMORE -- Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson is back in hospital for what he called a "routine" follow-up for treatment he received recently for a fever and infection.

Robinson was hospitalized at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center in April before undergoing what was supposed to be routine surgery. He stayed two weeks.

The former Baltimore Orioles star recently returned to the hospital and issued a statement Saturday night after rumors began circulating that he was in serious condition.

The statement read: "As you may recall, I was hospitalized in April for a routine procedure. I was recently hospitalized for a follow up procedure, also routine, and am expecting that I will undergo two additional procedures over the next several months that will provide me with a complete recovery from a prior abdominal surgery."

Robinson was also treated for prostate cancer in 2009. He said that procedure is unrelated to this one.

"These are routine and expected procedures, and I continue to remain cancer free," he said.
