According to NBC 10 Philadelphia, he will have surgery for the tumors early next week.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family at this difficult time,” the radio station said in a statement, included in NBC 10 Philadelphia’s report.

The All-Star catcher played in the MLB for 14 seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies and ended his career with the Miami Marlins in 1997.
