During Monday night's game against the Pirates, Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty was taken off the field on a stretcher following an absolutely horrific collision with teammate Peter Bourjos in the seventh inning. As both Cardinals players raced towards the gap to track down a ball off the bat of Josh Harrison headed towards the gap, Piscotty's face made contact with Bourjos' knee.

According to Cardinals reporter for MLB.com, Jenifer Langosch, Piscotty remained motionless for "several seconds before moving his arm." As Piscotty was taken off the field, he waved to the crowd. 

Piscotty was initially diagnosed with a head contusion. He has been taken to a nearby hospital for further tests.
