Vin Scully will sit out the postseason as he recuperates from a medical procedure, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced Friday.
Scully, 87, was scheduled to work six innings per game on Dodgers radio broadcasts for the team's National League Division Series against the New York Mets.
The plan was for Scully to work the first three innings and the final three, with Charley Steiner and Rick Monday handling the middle innings. Scully was not scheduled to work any of the games on television.
Scully missed the Dodgers' final homestand with what the team called an illness.
The team said Scully is "resting comfortably" but did not offer any details about the nature of the procedure. Doctors advised Scully to skip the playoffs to rest.
