Media Notes

In L.A., J.P. Hoornstra notes a COVID-19 outbreak in the booth will "cause the Dodgers to broadcast remotely" while the team begins an East Coast road trip on Friday against the Phillies. Charley Steiner and Jaime Jarrín were "absent from the Dodgers’ English and Spanish-language radio broadcasts," respectively, during Wednesday’s game. Rick Monday "shifted to play-by-play duties" with Jose Mota serving as the "analyst during the English-language broadcast" on KLAC-AM. Mota "switched from the Spanish booth to the English booth between games" of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the D-backs (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 5/19).
