Red Sox TV analyst Remy tweets he is “cancer free”

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox television analyst Jerry Remy says he is “cancer-free” after his latest round of treatment.

The 66-year-old former Red Sox second baseman has battled cancer on and off for the past decade. He took a leave of absence from NESN broadcasts following his most recent diagnosis in August.

On Saturday, Remy said on Twitter that he had undergone his first scan since the treatments and the results were “highly successful,” adding he was “cancer free for now and hopefully forever.”

Remy was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2008, relapsed in 2013 and again twice in 2017. He returned this season for his 31st year broadcasting Boston’s games.
