I know, it’s really none of my business. MLB ain’t tellin’, and I haven’t seen any speculation, and it’s probably a TMI answer anyway. But Inquring Minds Want to Know.
Earlier, he was diagnosed with some intestinal parasite, as were I believe Kevin Brown, Giambi’s wife, and, IIRC some other player. How they all got the same bug I am hoping was just from eating the same food someplace where not all employees washed hands before leaving rest room.
Anyway, all the others have returned to normal but not The Giambino, who continued weak and ill. I can’t help wondering if this relates the the steroids he didn’t take . Then, recently, after numerous tests, it was revealed that he has a benign tumor which is being treated and he’s indefinitely on the DL.
What’s got me curious is that they say he’s not being treated with surgery or chemotherapy. What else is there for a tumor? They are not even saying what body part is involved, which of course leads to speculation that it’s a body part that is not normally discussed publicly. Obviously, even if it were his nose he has the right to medical privacy. Still…
What kind of tumor gets treated without surgery or chemo?
