Rays first base coach George Hendrick had to help Rhymes as he folded near first base. He then had to be carted off the field for emergency medical attention.
The 95 mph fastball made a gruesome sound when it hit Rhymes in the arm. At this point it is still unknown what caused him to collapse. It was a frightening moment in the game.
Rhymes left the game 1-for-2 with a walk. The Rays lead by a score of 2-1 heading into the ninth inning.
