LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers Spanish-language radio broadcaster Jaime Jarrin was out on Saturday night and will miss the next two games due to the flu.

Jarrin, in his 55th season, was recognized by the Hall of Fame in 1998. From 1962-84, Jarrin did not miss a game and announced 4,000 consecutive games over 22 seasons.

Jarrin is expected to return to the broadcast booth on Tuesday when the Dodgers open a three-game series at San Diego.
