Just 24 hours away from Game 1 of their National League Division Series against the New York Mets, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that a key member of their team would miss the entire postseason.
Don't worry, fans, it's not Clayton Kershaw or Zack Greinke. Instead, Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully will miss the postseason after undergoing a medical procedure on Thursday morning.
Scully missed the team's four-game series in San Francisco last week and the team's final three games at Dodger Stadium over the weekend due to an undisclosed illness. We're still not sure what the illness was or the severity of it, but apparently it did require minor surgery.
The team announced that Scully is resting comfortably at this time, and has been advised by his doctors to miss the entire 2015 postseason.
"Everyone in the Dodgers organization wishes Vin the speediest of recoveries," the team said.
Scully will return for his 67th season in 2016, and is looking forward to returning next year said the team.
In Scully's absence, Charley Steiner and Rick Monday will call the games throughout the postseason until the Dodgers are either eliminated, or win their first World Series title in 27 years.
We wish Vin a speedy recovery.
