BOSTON (AP) - Former Red Sox second baseman Jerry Remy won't return to the broadcast booth this season.
Remy said in a statement released by the team's TV network late Thursday night that it isn't the time for him to come back. Remy's 34-year-old son, Jared, has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and domestic assault in the stabbing death of his girlfriend, Jennifer Martel.
Jerry Remy said he is ``full of grief for the Martel family.''
He says he hopes to return to the broadcast booth in the spring.
Jerry Remy has been a color analyst on team broadcasts on the New England Sports Network since 1988. He has struggled with health problems in recent years.
