Baltimore Orioles first baseman/designated hitter Trey Mancini had a cancer scare for two weeks in June, worrying that his Stage 3 colon cancer had returned, he told The Athletic in an exclusive.

After undergoing a regular bloodwork test, Mancini received a message on June 21 that said a carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) test showed an elevation above normal. This could indicate the presence of cancer cells or a tumor.

Mancini missed the 2020 season after he received a cancer diagnosis that March, had surgery and underwent six months of chemotherapy before returning to the Orioles in 2021.
