Sutton continues to be absent from broadcasts

MILWAUKEE -- D-backs television play-by-play man Daron Sutton has yet to reappear on the team's broadcasts and his scheduled appearance for FOX's national broadcast of Saturday's D-backs-Brewers game was cancelled by the network.

The D-backs have declined to say why Sutton has not appeared on their broadcasts since June 21, but multiple reports stated that he was suspended indefinitely.

Reports also stated that Sutton and the team clashed over wardrobe issues with the team wanting him to wear a D-backs logo polo shirt and Sutton preferring a coat and tie.

D-backs senior vice president of communications Josh Rawitch declined to say whether Sutton had been suspended. Rawitch did, however, take issue with the notion that the reason for Sutton's absence was because of a refusal to wear a D-backs logo polo shirt.

"That's just totally ludicrous and untrue," Rawitch said.

The team has declined to say when or if Sutton, who has been with the organization since 2007, will appear again on the broadcasts.

In Sutton's absence, radio play-by-play man Greg Schulte has been handling the TV duties with Jeff Munn taking over for Schulte on the radio.
