General manager Terry Ryan was discharged from the Mayo Clinic on Friday following Tuesday's successful surgery on his neck to address squamous-cell carcinoma in a lymph node.

The team physician, Dr. Vijay Eyunni, spoke with Ryan on Friday and said he is doing well. Ryan will spend the next few days recovering at home.

Ryan, 60, announced on Monday that he will miss the start of Spring Training; there is no timetable for his return. In Ryan's absence, assistant general manager Rob Antony will work with Mike Radcliff, vice president of player personnel, and Wayne Krivsky, special assistant to the GM.
