What Baseball Team does Mancini play for?
Trey Mancini plays for the Baltimore Orioles as Right Fielder
No other player on the Orioles’ dismal season brought tears to my eyes quite like Trey Mancini’s on opening day in Baltimore. Stage 3 colon cancer ruled Mancini out of the 2020 season.
On September 30, 2020, he finished treatment and announced to the media that he was cancer-free and ready for the season of 2021.
The 30-year-old not only returned to the field but also batted .255/.326/.432 with 21 home runs in 147 games.
Something has gone horribly wrong if he doesn’t win the American League Comeback Player of the Year award.
Only his future with the Orioles remains uncertain following his spectacular comeback to baseball and completion of his first full season since fighting cancer.
With no deal in place for Mancini by trade deadline day, Orioles executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias did not explicitly deny that the team was planning on pursuing an extension with him, but he also did not explicitly say that they were not interested in doing so.
A yearly pay is considerably more difficult to anticipate on a contract than it is on the open market.
Mancini hit 35 homers in 2019 and slugged 132 times with 35 runs batted in (.291/.364/.535). There were 21 homers and 105 wRC+, as well as 0.7 WAR, in this year’s stats.
