Cardinals reliever Marc Rzepczynski was injured during a golf outing Friday when a golf ball ricocheted and struck him around his left eye.

The Cardinals confirmed that the lefty was injured Friday.

General manager John Mozeliak said that the team is hopeful it's not serious.

Rzepczynski was scheduled to pitch Saturday for the Cardinals against the Marlins. He will instead rest the injury as the team gathers information and determines the severity of what could be a bruise in or around the eye.
