NESN has yet to announce it, but former ESPN AccuScore anchor Jenny Dell will replace Heidi Watney as Red Sox in-game reporter, according to The Boston Globe.

Watney left NESN recently and took a job in California with Time Warner Cable.

Dell is a UMass graduate who worked on and off-camera for ESPN, most recently involved with the Winter X Games. Her AccuScore video segments, which broke down weekly NFL match-ups, were a popular standard feature on ESPN.com.

Monday update: NESN has confirmed the hiring of Dell.
