MILWAUKEE (AP) The Milwaukee Brewers say minor leaguer Julio Mendez is in critical but stable condition after being hit in the chest by a pitch last weekend.

Milwaukee general manager David Stearns provided the update Friday.

The 20-year-old Mendez suffered a cardiac event after being hit by the pitch. The infielder was playing for a rookie-level affiliate in Arizona. He is being treated at a hospital in the Phoenix area.

''This continues to be a very serious situation and we send our thoughts and prayers to him,'' Stearns said. ''Julio's family is by his side and asks for privacy at this time.''
