Mets broadcaster Ron Darling announced he will be taking a leave of absence due to a medical issue. The former Mets pitcher, now broadcaster, said a recent medical exam revealed a large mass in his chest. He is scheduled to undergo surgery to have removed in an operation next week.
“Doctors have told me if there are no complications I should be back on air talking baseball sometime next month. My health is the top priority right now for my family and I. I’m looking forward to being back in the booth with our crew and my friends Gary and Keith as soon as I can.”
