Kuiper issued a statement this morning saying that he'll be taking time off after being diagnosed with a condition that requires immediate chemotherapy. The 70-year old did not elaborate on what the condition is. But he says he does plan on getting back in the booth this year, and that he's staying positive for a quick and full recovery.
The Giants issued a statement saying in part: "The entire Giants Family sends our love and support to Duane and his family during this challenging time."
