Vin Scully has medical procedure, will miss Dodgers postseason games

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully underwent what the team is calling "a recommended medical procedure" on Thursday morning, and on the advice of his doctors will not call any Dodgers games this postseason.

He is said to be resting comfortably at home, per the team.

Scully, 87, missed the final weekend of the regular season with a cold. In recent postseasons, Scully has called the first three innings on radio as well as innings seven through nine, and has traveled with the team to call playoff games after a mostly-home schedule.

This regular season, Scully's only road games called were two of the club's three series in San Francisco against the Giants. Scully did not call the series at AT&T Park in the final week of the season.

The Dodgers' press release says Scully is looking forward to returning for the 2016 season, which would be his record 67th season with the team. The release also said, "Everyone in the Dodgers organization wishes Vin the speediest of recoveries."
