CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller is battling leukemia at the age of 91.

Feller was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia less than two weeks ago and spent two days at the Cleveland Clinic, followed by a week's worth of outpatient care.

According to the team's website, Feller said at Progressive Field on Sunday that he was feeling better and the prognosis was good, although nothing could be known for sure.

Feller, a 1962 Hall of Fame inductee, has a career record of 266-162 in 570 games over 18 seasons -- all with the Indians. He did not play from 1942-44 while he served in the Navy during World War II and finished in the top three of the MVP vote in three consecutive seasons from 1939-41.
