Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has been diagnosed with cancer and will miss next week’s winter meetings in Nashville, the team announced.

Alderson fainted during a press conference in early November and a week later the Mets issued a statement saying that he’d miss the winter meetings due to an unspecified medical procedure.

Today they revealed further details, including Alderson being scheduled to undergo 8-12 weeks of chemotherapy for what is being called a “treatable” form of cancer. He is expected to continue with his GM duties aside from missing the winter meetings.
