Nats catcher suffers an injury no one would wish on their worst enemy

Washington Nationals catcher Keibert Ruiz was pulled out of the game against the St. Louis Cardinals and taken to a hospital with a serious injury.

The Washington Nationals want to play spoilers after becoming the first team in the NL to be eliminated from the postseason. But during the team’s Sept. 8 game against the St. Louis Cardinals, one of their players sustained a worrying injury. An injury that hurts just reading it.

Catcher Keibert Ruiz was hit in the groin by a foul ball from Cardinals rookie outfielder Ben DeLuzio during an at-bat in the second inning. Ruiz had slammed his capture mask to the ground afterwards when he was checked by the team. He was eventually replaced by Riley Adams in the sixth inning.

After the game, it was revealed that Ruiz was taken to the hospital with swelling in his testicles. Manager Davey Martinez announced that they had a bus ready for Ruiz to travel to Philadelphia for their weekend series against the Phillies.

Keibert Ruiz was hospitalized with serious injuries

Prior to his elimination, Ruiz was 1-for-3 at the plate. The Nationals beat the Cardinals 11-6.

During the season, Ruiz had a .251 batting average, .313 on-base percentage, .360 batting percentage, seven home runs, 36 RBI and 99 hits in 112 games.

Ruiz’s status will be worth watching, particularly to see if he can feature in any of Washington’s three games against Philadelphia. Here he hopes to be able to play well for the team soon. Nats catcher suffers an injury no one would wish on their worst enemy
