Ruiz removed from WBC game

Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz was removed from Panama's 7-0 loss to Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic Saturday night after suffering a neck injury. "We have to wait until tomorrow to see what the doctor says," Panama manager Hector Lopez said in a postgame press conference in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

After Panama pitcher Bruce Chen suggested that Ruiz had suffered a pinch nerve, Lopez said: "It seems that he has a pinched nerve."  No further information was available.

I'll be sure to pursue this tomorrow after making the drive to Kissimmee, where the Phillies play the Braves at 1:05.
