Recent blood work showed no tumor DNA, clearing Mancini’s path back to the field in 2021. Strength and conditioning are expected to be major hurdles for the outfielder, so Mancini has already begun training five days a week.
Speaking on a Zoom just now, Trey Mancini said his most recent bloodwork showed no tumor DNA. He’s working out five days per week, and hitting lightly. He plans to be ready for Spring Training, and continue his advocacy work through the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. #Orioles— Joe Trezza (@JoeTrezz) November 11, 2020
