Mancini (cancer) was placed on the 45-day injured list Sunday, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
The 28-year-old announced in April he was undergoing six months of treatment for his battle with colon cancer, so it was only a matter of time before the team removed him from the 40-man roster. Mancini isn't expected to see the field in 2020 as a result, though he's expressed optimism about making a full recovery and resuming his career next season.
Mancini revealed Tuesday in an essay posted on The Players' Tribune that he will require six months of treatment for his battle with colon cancer and noted that he will likely miss the entire 2020 season. "If baseball returns in 2020, it will probably be without me," Mancini wrote.
After missing time early in spring training with what was labeled as an illness, Mancini was determined to have a malignant tumor in his colon and required surgery to address the matter March 12. Major League Baseball suspended its season that same day, and even with the hiatus likely continue at least until some point in May, Mancini doesn't appear as though he'll be ready to rejoin the Orioles when teams are allowed to resume training. Instead, Mancini's activity will be limited while he undergoes rounds of chemotherapy treatment every two weeks for the next six months, effectively ruling him out for the season. The 28-year-old is optimistic that he'll be able to make a full recovery and resume his career in 2021.
Orioles general manager Mike Elias said Monday that Mancini's recovery timeline will be measured in months rather than weeks after the slugger underwent surgery in March to remove a malignant tumor from his colon, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.
Elias relayed that while Mancini is on track to make a full recovery from the emergency procedure, the 28-year-old won't be rushed back into action. Major League Baseball has yet to outline a clear target date for teams to resume training, but based on Elias' comments, Mancini looks like he'll still be restricted in workouts -- if not withheld entirely -- even if the league-wide suspension extends into the middle of the summer.
Orioles general manager Mike Elias said Thursday that Mancini (stomach) has been released from the hospital and is scheduled to undergo additional tests in the near future, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.
Mancini was hospitalized for roughly a week after requiring surgery to remove a malignant tumor from his colon. The Orioles aren't likely to reveal a timeline for Mancini's return to activity until more information is available following testing, but the delayed start to the Major League Baseball season could help the 28-year-old avoid missing games while he's on the mend.
