They are saying some kind of inner ear ailment. Nothing concrete really. Staying overnight for test.

All per MLB.com

Wow, that's kind of crazy. I'm sure its just precautionary and he will be just fine - but, the words 'taken to the hospital' are never good.

There has been some kind of viral bug going around the brewer club house. Jenkins missed several games last week. I wouldn't be surprised if it was something related to that.

Apr 21 Updating an earlier item, Sports Network reports Milwaukee Brewers SP Ben Sheets (flu) was hospitalized with flu-like symptoms Thursday, April 21, after complaining of nausea and dizziness. Sheets was also given a series of tests. Sheets had pitched the day prior even though he had been questionable up to game time because of the flu. KFFL

Looks like he has vertigo again, I think he'll be fine.

Yeah it's been going around the team. Jenkins missed 3 games from it. Too bad he didn't just sit down and miss his spot in the rotation - I probably should have benched him after hearing how bad he was feeling before the game.

He was officially diagnosed with vestibular neuritis, which sounds worse than it is. It's a deep inner ear inflammation, which definitely accounts for the dizziness. I can't believe he pitched yesterday, that kind of thing can be pretty debilitating. I'm thinking he probably should have sat yesterday out and let Obermueller have the spot start, but he wanted to go. He won't make the trip to San Fran, but he wasn't due to pitch anyway.

Scooter - you the man! Thanks so much for the update. You must still be in WI...

Yeah, I couldn't believe he pitched either. I think you would probably have to rip the ball out of his hand before he gave up a start. Makes you wonder how much pain he was in last year when he missed starts because of his back injury...

Yeah and those boneheads left him to pitch over 100. There is a reason why that franchise just plain sucks. :-t

Full story if you want to know more... :-o

Yahoo! Sports wrote:Brewers ace Sheets hospitalized

April 22, 2005
HOUSTON (Ticker) - Milwaukee Brewers righthander Ben Sheets was hospitalized Thursday with vestibular neuritis, an inner-ear ailment that also sidelined him last June.

Sheets, who threw 110 pitches in a 6-1 loss to the Houston Astros on Wednesday night, complained of severe dizziness and nausea Thursday morning while visiting his family in nearby Katy, Texas.

Signed to the richest contract in Brewers history six days ago, Sheets will remain in a hospital in downtown Houston overnight. His scheduled start in St. Louis on Monday could be in doubt.

Vestibular neuritis is a condition in which inflammation in the inner ear causes severe nausea and vertigo. In approximately 95 percent of cases, it is a one-time occurrence.

Last year, the 26-year-old Sheets missed just one start due to the ailment before returning to toss a one-hitter against the Anaheim Angels on June 8.

"He got it last year and he got over it pretty quick," Milwaukee manager Ned Yost said. "But he can't fly so he has to stay overnight (at the hospital). When he got it last year, the doctors said there was a five percent chance of recurrence. We'll just have to wait and see."

Before Wednesday's start, Sheets was battling flu-like symptoms that have swept through the Milwaukee clubhouse. He allowed back-to-back home runs in the first inning and eventually surrendered six runs and nine hits in six plus innings while falling to 1-3.

Sheets refused to blame the illness for his performance Wednesday.

"I didn't feel bad before I went out there to pitch," he said.
