SS Luis Rodriguez has allergic reaction …
Sunday update: Rodriguez was released from the hospital Sunday. He was to be at PETCO Park sometime Sunday though, according to manager Bud Black, was “likely unavailable” to play.
Shortstop Luis Rodriguez was taken to Scripps Green Hospital in nearby La Jolla on Saturday afternoon after developing an allergic reaction to something that he ate before the game against the Pirates at PETCO Park.
A team spokesman indicated that Rodriguez was “resting comfortably” and “undergoing observations.”
According to the team spokesman, there would be more information during manager Bud Black’s postgame session with the media.
Rodriguez wasn’t in the starting lineup, though it wasn’t because of the reaction. Chris Burke got the start at shortstop instead.
Rodriguez is hitting .243 with one home run and five RBIs in 14 games this season as the Padres starter at shortstop.
