Darryl Strawberry leaves hospital after cancer surgery

NEW YORK (CNN) -- New York Yankees outfielder Darryl Strawberry was released from Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center on Friday following cancer surgery.

Strawberry's condition was diagnosed shortly before this year's baseball playoffs. He underwent surgery to have a cancerous 2.4-inch tumor removed from his colon on October 3. He will convalesce at his home in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

The World Series begins Saturday night at Yankee Stadium between the Yankees and National League champion San Diego Padres.

Strawberry, 36, began his major league career with the New York Mets in 1983. He signed with the Yankees in 1995 after battling a cocaine addiction that had led to his suspension from baseball that year after failing a drug test while a member of the San Francisco Giants. He also has played with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
