Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an update on the status of Cardinals reliever Blake Hawksworth, who was nailed in the face by a comebacker during Saturday’s game against the Cubs.

Hawksworth was given 30 stitches on his mouth and upper lip to repair the lacerations that he suffered, but a CT scan was negative and the 27-year-old was discharged from a Chicago hospital on Sunday afternoon.

He will make a full recovery but is not expected to pitch again this season because of precautionary reasons.

Hawksworth served as a long reliever and spot starter this year for St. Louis, posting a 4.98 ERA and 1.64 WHIP over 90.1 total innings.  He struck out 61 batters and walked 35.
