Stephen Piscotty released from the hospital


Mike Matheny said today that Stephen Piscotty has been released from the hospital following last night’s collision with Peter Bourjos.

Last night all initial tests came back negative and he was held overnight for observation. That he’s being released now suggests that he was well-observed. Matheny said Piscotty suffered “a couple bruises, but overall everything checked out very clean.” No word yet on how long it will be until he’s playing again.

Picotty has been a revelation this year for the Cards, hitting .310/.365/.502 with 7 homers and 39 RBI in 62 games.
