Ryan Leahy has played for Provo, Cedar Rapids, Rancho Cucamonga and Arkansas in his three years with the Angels.
The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes reported Monday on their web site that Angels minor league infielder Ryan Leahy has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
The Quakes cited a January 23 article in the Salem News reporting the illness. According to the Quakes, Leahy’s surgery will be soon so he can report to spring training if there are no complications.
The story on the Quakes site states that fans can send well wishes to Ryan at the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
