Back in 2000, Ryan had a double-bypass operation. At that time, doctors also discovered another undisclosed condition.
He had been expected to join the Rangers in Anaheim, California on Tuesday night to throw out the games ceremonial first pitch.
Ryan has been running the Rangers since 2008 and became part-owner last summer. He is a member of the baseball Hall of Fame, holding the records for most no-hitters (seven) and strikeouts (5,714).
