Keibert Ruiz

On Thursday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Washington Nationals catcher Keibert Ruiz was hospitalized after receiving a foul ball to the groin. According to Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post, Ruiz was admitted to the hospital after experiencing swelling testicles.

St. Louis Cardinals center fielder Ben DeLuzio was injured when he fouled off a pitch from Josiah Gray in the second inning. Soon after, the ball struck Ruiz where it hurt the most—his groin.

At first, Ruiz stayed in the game, but he eventually left in the sixth. After he was replaced, the Nationals went on to an 11-6 victory. Ruiz managed just one hit in three at-bats before having to leave the game.

While Ruiz was getting checked out, the Nationals held the team bus so that he could make the trip to Philadelphia if he was given the green light. The extent of Ruiz’s injuries and how long he will be out are yet unknown.

After being acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for Trea Turner and Max Scherzer, Ruiz is now in his second season with the Nationals. Ruiz is batting.251 with seven homers and 36 RBI through 112 games this season.
