Is Trey Mancini’s Departure From Orioles Inevitable?

After the 2021 baseball season got underway, Orioles first baseman Trey Mancini was one of the happiest guys walking the planet.

The 29-year-old is healthy after having the world literally shaken beneath his feet last March when he was told surgery was required to remove a cancerous tumor in his colon.
