Mancini said he was feeling off during spring training in Florida and initially chalked it up to “getting older.” He went to the hospital for bloodwork, and celiac disease or a stomach ulcer were the suspected culprits, he said.

“When I went in for an endoscopy and colonoscopy, the doctors told me that they were really expecting to confirm that I had celiac disease, which is found in your small intestine. When the anesthesia put me under, I believed everything was going to be O.K.,” Mancini wrote.
