When word dropped that Trey Mancini needed to undergo a non-baseball medical procedure, concern flooded throughout MLB. Of course, nowhere was that concern greater than in the Orioles clubhouse, were teammates are holding good thoughts for one of their top players.
The Orioles have not disclosed what kind of medical procedure Mancini is undergoing, relaying to the media that they are respecting his privacy, which is appropriate. However, hearing sentiments like those offered above by Alex Cobb is highly-concerning.
Mancini, 27, is the Orioles top young player, batting .291 last year with 35 homers and 97 RBI. He was dealing with flu-like symptoms earlier this spring training and has only appeared in five games. Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said he will "miss some time" but didn't say how much.
Like the rest of his teammates, all of Major League Baseball is sending positive thoughts Mancini's way too.
