Kruk Ousted From ESPN MLB Sunday Night Broadcast Team

January 14th, 2016 by WCBC Radio

Keyser's John Kruk, a former major league player, will no longer be providng analysis during ESPN's Sunday Night baseball broadcasts. The offseason shuffle of Major League ballplayers is shaking up lineups for the 2016 season — and ESPN has shaken up its broadcast lineups to cover the action. There were no trades or free-agent signings by the network, but plenty of in-booth shifting. Jessica Mendoza and Aaron Boone were added as analysts to join Dan Shulman on "Sunday Night Baseball" broadcasts, while previous analysts Curt Schilling and John Kruk were re-assigned to other jobs at ESPN. Mendoza, 35, became the network's first female analyst on baseball games in August after Schilling was removed from the booth for making a controversial remark on social media. Mendoza, who was supposed to guest announce on a couple of Monday games, helped call Jake Arrieta's no-hitter for her first game and drew high enough marks for her work that she finished the season in the role. She also called games during the postseason and in the College World Series.
