Orioles legend Jim Palmer is out of the MASN broadcast booth while dealing with myelitis, inflammation of the spinal cord that Palmer tweeted was caused by shingles.

The 73-year-old Palmer is the winningest pitcher in Orioles history and a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He credited the Orioles’ team trainers and doctors for suggesting he get an MRI, which revealed the infection.

Palmer spent his entire 19-year career with the Orioles and has spent another 27 as a color commentator on the team’s broadcasts. He did not say when he will return to the broadcast booth.

The Orioles issued support to Palmer through their team Twitter account.
