Longtime Boston Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy was again diagnosed with cancer, according to a statement released by NESN.

“At this time, Jerry’s focus is on his medical treatment. The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time,” the station said in the statement.

Remy, 65, was first diagnosed with lung caner in late 2008, and took a leave of absence for most of the 2009 season. His cancer returned in 2013 and again twice in 2017. In January of this year, Remy announced on Twitter that he had completed a cancer treatment.

Remy, a second baseman, played from 1975-1984 with the Angels and Red Sox, making the AL All-Star team in 1978. He joined NESN in 1988.
