Heat shelves D-Ray
The Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Tampa Bay second baseman Brent Abernathy was hospitalized with dehydration after the Devil Rays' 10-0 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.
Abernathy played all nine innings in the 90-degree weather, going 1-for-3 with a walk. He began to cramp up after the game and was given two IVs in the Devil Rays' clubhouse before being taken out of Kauffman Stadium on a stretcher.
He was to spend the night at St. Luke's Hospital for further observation.
It's not life threatening, Devil Rays trainer Jamie Reed said. It's not serious, but I don't want to take a chance at 30,000 feet.
BLUE JAYS: First baseman Carlos Delgado was placed on the disabled list.
Delgado played 432 consecutive games before missing last Sunday's game. He then sat out the next three games before returning to the lineup as the DH on Thursday. He was too sore to play the weekend.
The move is retroactive to Aug. 9.
Delgado is hitting .254 with 21 home runs and 78 RBI.
ROYALS: Second baseman Carlos Febles was sent to Triple-A Omaha after Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Febles, the team's starting second baseman since 1999, was hitting .233 with four homers, 22 RBI and 39 runs scored in 102 games. He went 3-for-4 with a homer Sunday.
