Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS -

Boston Red Sox tele­vi­sion an­a­lyst Jerry Remy said Mon­day he has been di­ag­nosed with lung can­cer for a fifth time and will have surgery in two weeks.

The 64-year-old Remy, who played the first three sea­sons of a 10-year ma­jor league ca­reer with the An­gels from 1975-77, said he plans to work un­til the surgery and to re­turn af­ter the All-Star break.

Remy, who played in Boston from 1978-84 and has been a TV an­a­lyst there since 1988, was first di­ag­nosed with can­cer in 2008. “It’s some­thing that I’ve been through a num­ber of times,” he said. “It has not spread. It’s lo­cated in one spot and surgery will re­move it.” Etc.

Hous­ton placed right-han­der Lance McCullers, one of its top starters, on the 10-day dis­abled list with a back prob­lem, an­other blow to a ro­ta­tion dec­i­mated by in­juries. He is 6-1 with a 2.58 ERA . . . . Tampa Bay starter Matt An­driese re­turned to the DL with a stress re­ac­tion in his hip . . . . Mets out­fielder Yoe­nis Ce­s­pedes, just back from a six-week DL stint for a ham­string strain, left a game against the Cubs be­cause of a sore left heel . . . . Bal­ti­more slug­ger Chris Davis left Mon­day’s game with an oblique strain.
