He is a former smoker, but otherwise has no past medical history. On examination, the patient appears fatigued and thin; his stool is guaiac positive. He is referred to a gastroenterologist who performs an esophagogastroduodonoscopy that reveals a mass in the antrum of the stomach. Pathology consistent with adenocarinoma. Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in management:
