John Kruk is not announcing the ESPN broadcast of Sunday’s Dodgers-Red Sox game after being taken out of the press dining room on a gurney.

Kruk was alert and sitting up.

ESPN reported he was dizzy and suffering from dehydration. The cable network issued an official statement that his vital signs were stable and he was in good spirits.

Kruk, 52, was initially taken from the press room by Dodger Stadium medical personnel before the start of Sunday’s game. The former Phillie has been announcing games with ESPN since 2004.

Kruk, who spent 10 years in the majors and finished with a career .300 batting average, suffers from diabetes.
