BOSTON—Rays reliever Juan Salas suffered a seizure this afternoon at Fenway Park and was taken to a local hospital.
Salas, who suffers from epilepsy, has had similar episodes before. The Rays expect him to be fine, but he will not be at the ballpark tonight.
His status for tomorrow’s game is uncertain.
Updating: Manager Joe Maddon said he believed Salas was stricken as he entered Fenway Park.
“He’s fine,” said Maddon. “He’s had it before and it just takes normally hours to get him back [to normal], so he should be fine by tomorrow.”
