Orioles slugger Trey Mancini is out of the hospital and doing "terrific" since undergoing a procedure to remove a malignant tumor in his colon, GM Mike Elias told reporters on a conference call Thursday.

The team had announced the procedure last week after initially saying Mancini's abrupt departure from spring training was for a non-baseball medical procedure.

"He's doing really well," Elias said Thursday. "His spirits are great, his physical condition is great. He's been up walking around, he's out of the hospital, he's just doing terrific."

Elias said Mancini has more tests and appointments to come, but he's optimistic about how things are going.

"I feel really good about the prognosis," he said, "and how he came out of surgery and where he is and where he's going."
