SAN DIEGO (CBS/AP) — Texas Rangers television play-by-play announcer Dave Barnett will undergo an evaluation and miss at least two games after he gave a rambling, incoherent description of game play that confused viewers.

During the eighth inning Monday night in San Diego, Barnett said a runner was on “fifth” base after a “botched robbery.” He then mentioned a “henchman” before the broadcast went silent for several seconds.

In a statement Tuesday, the Rangers said Barnett would be evaluated over the “next few days” and miss the rest of the San Diego series. The team says Barnett believes he’s had a recurrence of migraine headaches.

KCAL-9 TV reporter Serene Branson was diagnosed with migraine-related symptoms after a similar on-air incident during the Grammys last year.

Radio announcer Steve Busby will take Barnett’s place.
