The Cardinals were hopeful that Aledmys Diaz would be OK, but he was scheduled to visit a Kansas City-area hospital late Monday for further tests. Diaz had swelling and discoloration above his right eye where he was struck by a foul ball that bounced off home plate in the ninth inning while batting against Joakim Soria. "In the beginning, I was a little scared because I couldn't see anything. It was a little blurry, but thank God it went down and now I'm able to see OK," Diaz said through an interpreter. "At first, I thought it hit me in the eye, but when I looked at video, I saw that it hit me in the brow." Diaz likely will undergo a concussion protocol before Tuesday's game, but he said he felt no dizziness or nausea after the game. Those are often symptoms of a concussion. Diaz, 25, is batting .316 to lead all National League shortstops.
