The news continues to be positive regarding St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty, who suffered a head contusion in a collusion with teammate Peter Bourjos in last night’s 3-0 victory over Pittsburgh.
“He just got released actually,” shared Mike Matheny with MLB Radio earlier this afternoon. Piscotty, who was carted off the field, was kept overnight in a local hospital for observation.
“Saw him last night and he was responding well,” continued Matheny. “Had a couple of bruises, but overall everything checked out very clean. Had a couple more tests today and things came back as positive as we could hope for.”
POSTPONED TIL TOMORROW
