I just wanted to fill you in on something that happened to Melky Cabrera. He had a tumor removed from his spine. It was benign. According to USA Today (HERE):
Hopefully Melky has a full recovery and he's back with the Blue jays this spring." Cabrera had a benign tumor removed from his spine and is expected to be ready for spring training.
Cabrera, who hasn't played since Aug. 1 because of a season-ending ankle injury, had the surgery on Aug. 30.
The outfielder was experiencing back pain for three or four months, but hadn't told anyone about it, Toronto general manager Alex Anthopoulos said on Saturday before the Blue Jays' game against the Minnesota Twins. The tumor was pushing on nerves and causing weakness in his legs and causing the issues that plagued Cabrera throughout the season."
