(KMOV.com) - Cardinal shortstop Aledmys Diaz left Monday night's game in Kansas City in the ninth inning after fouling a ball off home plate that bounced up and hit him near his right eye. 

On Fox Sports Midwest's post game show, manager Mike Matheny said Diaz had goose egg swelling above his right eye but seemed to avoid any serious injury. 

Diaz was taken to a local hospital for further testing.
