Joe Siddall to replace Gregg Zaun on Blue Jays broadcasts

Sportsnet has announced that former major league catcher Joe Siddall will join the Blue Jays Central broadcast as a studio analyst.

Siddall takes over from Gregg Zaun, who was fired in December following complaints by female colleagues of inappropriate behaviour and language.

Sportsnet says Siddall will work alongside host Jamie Campbell for pre- and post-game coverage of the Blue Jays. He will make his debut March 26.

The native of Windsor, Ont., has been a full-time analyst on Sportsnet's radio broadcasts of Blue Jays games since 2014.

Siddall began his major league career with the Montreal Expos in 1993.

He made 78 appearances between 1993 and 1998 with Montreal, Florida and Detroit, posting a .169 batting average with one home run and 11 runs batted in.
