18486134-mmmainTigers fans I’m sorry to announce that once again something is going on with your team. Pitcher Daniel Norris posted today¬†“I’ve been debating for months as to how or even if I should share this with people,” he wrote. “I’m a firm believer in the power of prayer. So now, I’m asking for prayers.” While posting this you should know he was announcing he has Thyroid Cancer.

Norris learned about this earlier in the season.

“Hearing this was alarming, yeah. Weird, yea, that too,” he wrote. “I was given the option to shut my year down and get it removed immediately. However, seeing another doctor that determined I could wait until the end of the season reassured my gut feeling. Just Keep Playing.

“Baseball kept me sane. Regardless of results on the field, I forgot about it when I was between the lines. After all, I was just trying to get the heck out of AAA.”

Tigers manager Al Avila said the team was aware of Norris’ condition before making the trade. He is expected to make a full recovery.
