Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy battling cancer once again

Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy battling cancer once again

Remy, 65, signed a multi-year contract in 2016 to remain the primary analyst for the Red Sox on NESN. He finished treatment earlier this year in January.

"Jerry Remy has been diagnosed once again with cancer", said a brief statement on NESN's web site.

It's unclear if Remy will return to the booth this season.

NESN announced the longtime analyst's diagnosis and said his "focus is on his medical treatment".

The Red Sox official account tweeted, "Our thoughts and prayers are with Jerry".
