Jerry Remy Diagnosed With Cancer Again

On Tuesday, NESN announced that Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy's cancer has returned. Mastrodonato tweeted the news with a statement from NESN, Remy's employer. "The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this hard time".

Remy, 65, was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008. "The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this hard time".

The lung cancer returned multiple times in 2017, forcing Remy to miss the start of baseball season, as well as nearly the entire second half. He finished treating that bout of cancer in January.

He was treated in time to begin the 2017 season - his 30th season in the broadcast booth - on Opening Day.
