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:
