Some great news was announced Sunday morning. Former Giants outfielder Connor Joe was deemed cancer free, his agent tweeted. 

Joe, 27, announced in March that he was undergoing treatment for testicular cancer. He was the Giants' Opening Day left fielder last season, and played eight games with San Francisco.

Joe went just 1-for-15 with the Giants last season before he was designated for assignment. The Giants then had to send him back to the Los Angeles Dodgers as a Rule 5 Draft pick

With the Dodgers' Triple-A team, Joe had a strong season by batting .300 with 15 homers and a .929 OPS in 105 games played. He was a non-roster invitee to Dodgers spring training, but had to leave a few weeks before games were shut down due to the coronavirus.
