John Kruk taken from Dodger Stadium on stretcher
John Kruk is missing from ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball telecast. One report says that he was taken away on a stretcher.
John Kruk won't be part of the broadcast as he usually is for Sunday Night Baseball on ESPN, as play-by-play man Dan Shulman opened the broadcast by saying Kruk is "a little under the weather."
That doesn't sound too bad, but this does:

Kruk, 52, spent parts of 10 seasons in the majors, playing for the Phillies, Padres and White Sox. He was a three-time All-Star for the Phillies. He's been with ESPN since 2004.
Update: ESPN has released the following statement:
"John left the booth feeling dizzy and was diagnosed as being dehydrated. His vital signs are stable."
