In March 2020, Mancini revealed that he had a malignant tumor removed and would be absent for a year while undergoing treatment for stage 3 colon cancer. In November, Mancini revealed that ‘he was cancer free and all systems were working for the 2021 season.

Mancini, still the classy guy, tried to distract some of the attention from himself, saying Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez should be congratulated and recognized for his return to the pitch in 2021, after being sidelined from the complications of COVID-19.

So not only did Mancini destroy the cancer, he destroyed the throw, crushing 35 home runs in 2019 with a 136 OPS +. Hoping that Mancini continues to crush him in 2021.
