Keibert Ruiz has seen better days, and they were filled with less pain.
The Washington Nationals catcher took a foul ball to his groin on Thursday night against the St. Louis Cardinals and would be forced to leave the game in the sixth inning.
Ruiz was then taken to the hospital because he’s dealing with swollen testicles.
“No easy way to put this: Keibert Ruiz was sent to the hospital with swollen testicles after getting hit with a foul ball,” Zuckerman said. “Nationals are waiting for him to return before they all leave for Philly.”
So far in 2022, Ruiz is hitting .251 with seven home runs and 36 RBIs.
