The Milwaukee Brewers say Arizona League third baseman Julio Mendez is hospitalized in critical but stable condition after suffering a "cardiac event" following a hit by pitch.
The Brewers say Mendez received treatment on the field after getting hit in the ninth inning of a game Saturday at Tempe Diablo Stadium before being taken to a hospital. The game between the rookie level teams of the Brewers and Angels was called with one out after Mendez got hurt.
