On Tuesday, NESN announced that Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy’s cancer has returned.
Jerry Remy has been diagnosed once again with cancer.
At this time, Jerry’s focus is on his medical treatment. The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time.
It’s far from the most critical aspect of Remy’s illness, but Steve Lyons will replace him in the Red Sox booth alongside Dave O’Brien during Boston’s next two series, on the road in Toronto and Baltimore.
In Remy's absence, Steve Lyons will be in the both with Dave O'Brien for the next two series in Toronto and Baltimore.
