Day 27: Cardinals @ Marlins

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

Marc Rzepczynski won’t be here this weekend as he recovers from an eye injury he suffered during a golf outing with Randy Choate, Seth Maness and Lance Lynn on Friday. Lynn said he believes it was a rock or some other piece of debris — but not the golf ball — that struck Rzepczynski in the eye when the lefty took his second swing of the day. Rzepczynski, according to Choate, went to the ground holding his eye. Choate immediately drove him back to the Cardinals’ complex to be evaluated. Rzepczynski was later seen leaving with an eye patch. He’s expected back in the clubhouse next week.

Look for additional details about the incident in today’s Cardinals.com notebook.
