Former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has prostate cancer

Former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will undergo surgery in Minnesota sometime in the next few weeks, he announced Tuesday.

Gardenhire, hired last November to serve as bench coach for new Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo, will take a leave of absence from his new team in order to begin treatment. Gardenhire, who intends to keep coaching until having surgery, probably in mid-April, broke the news in a clubhouse meeting with the Diamondbacks on Tuesday morning.

The 59-year-old Gardenhire was diagnosed earlier this month after a blood test taken during a physical exam revealed the possibility of cancer. A follow-up MRI confirmed the diagnosis. His surgery will be performed after several weeks of preparation, Gardenhire said, by Dr. Williams Utz in Minneapolis.

The cancer was caught early, Gardenhire told the D-Backs, and his prognosis is good. Doctors have told him follow-up chemotherapy will likely not be necessary, and it’s possible he could return to his new team six weeks after the procedure.

Go get ‘em, Gardy.
