Toronto Blue Jays broadcaster Dan Shulman will be off the air for the next few games.
Sportsnet’s key television play-by-play man Shulman shared today on Twitter that he’s out for the Blue Jays’ road series against the Cleveland Guardians due to being a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case.
Hey #BlueJays fans, wanted to let you know I won’t be on the CLE series because of close contact with someone who tested positive. But assuming all goes well, I’ll be back in NY. Until then, @benwag247 and Tabby will have the call for you on TV and radio. See you soon!
