BALTIMORE -- Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson has been released from the hospital after receiving follow-up treatment for a fever and infection.

Robinson left the hospital Monday and is "home and doing well," according to his assistant, Diane Hock.

Robinson was hospitalized at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center in April before undergoing what was supposed to be routine surgery. He stayed two weeks.

The former Baltimore Orioles star returned to the hospital last week. In a statement issued Saturday night, Robinson said he was undergoing a routine follow-up procedure. He said he will undergo two additional procedures over the next several months designed to provide a "complete recovery from a prior abdominal surgery."

Robinson was also treated for prostate cancer in 2009. He said he remains cancer free.
