Arizona Diamondbacks TV broadcaster Daron Sutton not in booth for game


"Daron Sutton will not be in the broadcast booth for Friday night's game against the Chicago Cubs. When asked about Sutton's status, club officials declined to elaborate. "We made a change in the broadcast-talent lineup and Daron will be taking some time off," said Josh Rawitch, the Diamondbacks' senior vice president of communications. Reached on his cellphone late Friday afternoon, Sutton disputed any notion that he had been suspended and called the entire matter "a personal situation." The earlier version of the headline said Sutton "apparently was suspended by the club", but that no longer is stated by the story.
