HARRISBURG -- Harrisburg Senators catcher Brian Jeroloman is still in an Erie hospital recovering from a home plate collision during last night's Eastern League playoff game.
Jeroloman, 28, is listed in good condition at St. Vincent Health System, Erie's largest hospital.
It's unclear when he will be released.
Jeroloman was placed on the disabled list Thursday afternoon and catcher Cole Leonida was promoted to Harrisburg from Potomac.
Jeroloman was apparently being checked for a ruptured esophagus, which could require surgery, but Senators broadcaster Terry Byrom believes that has "been ruled out."
He was injured in the seventh inning when Brandon Douglas scored by running him over at home plate during a ground out by Jaime Johnson. Jeroloman needed to be helped off the field. He had a cut on his face, according to Tom Reisenweber of the Erie Times-News.
Harrisburg won the game 5-4 to take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-five series.
Jeroloman has played for three teams this season: Indianapolis (Pirates), Syracuse (Nationals) and Harrisburg. He was originally drafted by Toronto from the University of Florida.
