    (Published Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017)

    Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy says he is finished treatment for lung cancer.

    Remy tweeted that his treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital ended on Tuesday morning.

    The 65-year-old underwent surgery for lung cancer back in June — his fifth relapse. He began chemotherapy in late August before returning to NESN's broadcast booth for a few games in September.

    Remy said he plans to gain some strength before heading down to Fort Myers for Spring Training.

    Remy has been with the Red Sox since 1988, providing colorful commentary. Before that, he was a second baseman on the team from 1978 through 1984.
