If the Dodgers broadcasts have sounded a bit different of late, things could be getting back to normal soon. Last week we learned that play-by-play broadcaster Joe Davis had tested positive for coronavirus and, along with Orel Hershiser, would be off the call for the time being while adhereing to covid protocols. On Tuesday night, Joe took to social media to provide an update on his status.
Hi guys — your thoughts and encouragement have meant a lot. I'm doing great now. I hate not being there for these games, and will be back the minute protocols allow. That'll be Saturday for what I hope is a memorable finish.

The Dodgers said in a statement that Davis was fully vaccinated. Notably, Orel never reportedly tested positive for the virus due to close contact in the booth with Joe. Now, the hope and expectation is that we’ll be hearing Jorel again on Saturday’s broadcast and for Sunday’s regular season finale.
In the meantime, Tim Neverett and Nomar Garciaparra have filled in on the call.
