Carlos Ruiz Out with Bruised Testicle

What can we say? We have the sense of humor of a few six-year-old boys here at LBS. Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz missed Wednesday night’s game because of a left testicle contusion. He got hurt after getting hit in the schnuts by a foul ball Tuesday. Chooch managed to catch the final three innings of that game but it acted up the next day, forcing him to take a game off.

“He kind of got hit in the family jewels,” Manuel said of Ruiz Wednesday.

Brian Schneider caught for the Phillies and went 1-for-3 in their 9-2 win Wednesday night. I’d suggest Ruiz try out one of those NuttyBuddy cups, but apparently they’re not too reliable.

It’s probably no surprise that this isn’t the first testicle injury we’ve covered here at LBS. It certainly won’t be the last, but my favorite ball injury story all-time remains this one.
