Stephen Piscotty has been cleared to return from his concussion.

Stephen Piscotty (concussion) will take batting practice on Friday.

Piscotty will participate in batting practice on Friday before meeting with the doctor for another concussion test. Piscotty collided with fellow outfielder Peter Bourjos on Monday. Cards GM John Mozeliak said Tuesday that the 24-year-old had a "slight concussion," which is akin to being slightly pregnant. It's still possible that Piscotty plays before the regular season draws to a close on Sunday.
Oct 2 - 5:29 PM

Cardinals GM John Mozeliak said Tuesday that Stephen Piscotty has a "slight concussion."

But all of the other scans came back negative and it's possible Piscotty will return to action before the end of the regular season. That's exceptional news considering how ugly his collision with Peter Bourjos appeared Monday night in Pittsburgh. The rookie outfielder might get some action in the Cardinals' final regular-season series this weekend in Atlanta and should be a go for the playoffs.
Sep 29 - 5:22 PM

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Tuesday that Stephen Piscotty (head) has been released from the hospital.

Excellent news. It was easy to fear the worst after Monday's violent collision with teammate Peter Bourjos, but initial tests came back negative and he was held overnight for observation. Matheny said Piscotty suffered "a couple bruises, but overall everything checked out very clean." It's unclear when he'll be ready to play again, but he was fortunate things weren't much worse.
Sep 29 - 3:29 PM

Initial scans performed on Stephen Piscotty (head) came back negative.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny indicated that while Piscotty is sure to be very sore, it appears there should be no long-term damage. It's a miracle that Piscotty looks to have managed to avoid a serious injury after a violent collision with Peter Bourjos Monday that saw Bourjos' knee collide with Piscotty's head. He will be held at the hospital overnight for observation and the Cards should have more on the outfielder Tuesday.
Sep 28 - 11:09 PM

Stephen Piscotty left Monday's game against the Pirates after colliding in the outfield with Peter Bourjos.

It was an ugly scene in Pittsburgh, as Bourjos' knee looked to collide directly with Piscotty's head. Piscotty looked like he might have been knocked unconscious, although he eventually was moving his arms and waved as he was taken off the field on a stretcher. The Cardinals are only saying for now that Piscotty suffered a head contusion and was transported to a hospital to be evaluated further. It's certainly possible the Cardinals have been dealt another massive injury blow.

Sep 9 - 4:42 PM
