Jerry Remy diagnosed with cancer again


Former Red Sox second baseman and current NESN analyst Jerry Remy has been diagnosed with cancer for the sixth time.

The network released this statement:

“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."

Remy, 65, is in his 31st season on Red Sox telecasts after playing for Boston from 1978-84. He underwent five weeks of radiation treatment this winter after chemotherapy last August and surgery for lung cancer last June.

Former Red Sox outfielder and NESN studio analyst Steve Lyons will work Red Sox games in Toronto and Baltimore on this road trip in Remy's absence.
