D-backs broadcaster Grace takes leave of absence
Arizona Diamondbacks broadcaster Mark Grace has taken an indefinite leave of absence to seek personal assistance, the team announced Friday afternoon.

Grace was arrested by a Scottsdale police officer on Thursday, according to The Arizona Republic, for a DUI. He was initially pulled over for having an expired registration plate.

Luis Gonzalez will serve as the analyst on the FOX Sports Arizona broadcast for Friday and Saturday's games against the Padres, while Joe Garagiola will be in the booth for Sunday's telecast.

Grace played for the D-backs from 2001-2003, winning a World Series with the team in '01. He's been in Arizona's broadcast booth for nine seasons.
