Connor Joe Undergoes Surgery For Testicular Cancer

Dodgers outfielder Connor Joe announced that he has undergone surgery after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. MLBTR extends its best wishes to him for a swift and complete recovery.

Joe, now 27, spent a brief stretch in the big leagues last year with the Giants. He was taken in the Rule 5 draft by the Reds and eventually traded on to the San Francisco organization. Joe logged his first big league hit with the Giants but struggled in eight games before being sent back to the Dodgers.
