Former Major League Baseball standout and three-time All-Star John Kruk is reportedly out as a baseball analyst at ESPN, per Big Lead:
“ESPN and John Kruk have mutually agreed to end our relationship at this time. We’re thankful to John for his memorable contributions to our baseball coverage over the years – a run which included roles on our signature MLB franchises Sunday Night Baseball and Baseball Tonight. We wish John all the best.”
Kruk retired after a 10-year career and joined ESPN in 2004. He was a member of the nightly shows at ESPN, but also helped during coverage of Spring Training and the Little League World Series.
On the NFL side, Keyshawn Johnson, along with Mike Ditka, Cris Carter and Tom Jackson, have been replaced by Randy Moss, Charles Woodson, Matthew Hasselbeck and Trent Dilfer as part of the repackaging. Skip Bayless is another media member who bolted from ESPN as part of the rebranding.
