Mancini, 28, was diagnosed with stage three colon cancer in March and started chemotherapy the following month, missing the entire 2020 season.


Just over five months after starting chemo, Mancini wrapped up treatment.

On Twitter, Perlman said she has never been more joyful, thanking fans for their well-wishes.

The team, meanwhile, shared a video of Mancini opening a special gift from his fellow birds: a team photo with words of encouragement from his teammates.
