Daron Sutton (born October 21, 1969)[1] is an American baseball broadcaster who currently serves as a play-by-play announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers. His initial television role was for five years as the play-by-play voice of Major League Baseball's Milwaukee Brewers. He later served as the television voice of the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Angels. Daron has been a play-by-play voice of the Pac-12 Network [2] since 2014.

Daron Sutton is the son of former pitcher and Hall of Famer Don Sutton, who was also a broadcaster.


Sutton started his career at CNN in 1992 upon graduating from Auburn University at Montgomery in 1992 with a degree in communications.[citation needed] He also pitched professionally for two years in the Anaheim Angels and Atlanta Braves organizations.[citation needed]

Daron has been close to the game since birth as his father is MLB Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton. Daron had the opportunity to work alongside his father as a member of the Atlanta Braves broadcast team from 1997 through 1999, including hosting pre-game and post-game shows and play-by-play work for Braves telecasts on Fox Sports Net South.[citation needed]

While working in Atlanta, he also broadcast many Southeastern Conference sporting events, including basketball, gymnastics, swimming, and track and field.[citation needed]

In 2000-01, Daron served as the radio voice of the Anaheim Angels, where he worked with Mario Impemba.[citation needed] From 2002-06, Sutton was the television voice of the Milwaukee Brewers.[citation needed] In 2003, Sutton received a Chicago/Midwest chapter Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement for Individual Excellence on Camera.[citation needed] He also was nominated four other times for regional Emmy Awards in similar capacities.[citation needed]

Sutton was released from his contract by the Brewers amicably on October 23, 2006, as he had sought to pursue other options.[citation needed] He was mentioned as a possible replacement for Thom Brennaman with the Arizona Diamondbacks and signed a five-year contract, with a three-year club option, to replace Brennaman on November 1, 2006.[3] Sutton was the voice of the Diamondbacks until June 2012.

From 2010 until 2015, Daron also handled play-by-play assignments for Fox Saturday Baseball.[citation needed] In recent years, Sutton continued to broadcast Fox Baseball, Fox Sports 1 High School and College Football, Pac-12 Network basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, soccer, gymnastics and wrestling, while serving as a spokesman for Perfect Game, hosting a weekly show on MLB Network Radio.[4][5][6][7]

Sutton founded and assisted in the launch of Perfect Game, a streaming network devoted to the coverage of amateur baseball. He serves as the network's Executive Producer and lead host, while acting as the Vice President of Content for Perfect Game.[citation needed] Sutton currently hosts three weekly shows on Sirius XM, MLB Roundtrip with Perfect Game, Perfect Game College Baseball and Perfect Game Softball.[citation needed]

On March 11, 2021, Sutton rejoined the Los Angeles Angels as their secondary play-by-play broadcaster on Bally Sports West, filling in for primary broadcaster Matt Vasgersian when he was broadcasting national games for ESPN and MLB Network.[8] On July 11, 2021, Sutton announced the Angels organization had decided to unexpectedly part ways with him after only 89 games with the network.[9]

In 2022, Sutton joined the Los Angeles Dodgers as their fill-in play-by-play broadcaster on Spectrum SportsNet LA, filling in for primary broadcaster Joe Davis when he was broadcasting national games for Fox Sports.
