Braves’ Salazar still recovering in hospital

Atlanta Braves minor league manager Luis Salazar is still

recovering at an Orlando-area hospital from facial injuries after

being hit by a foul ball.

Doctors were evaluating injuries to Salazar’s left eye on

Friday. A further update from the Braves could come this

weekend.

Salazar was struck by Brian McCann’s foul liner while standing

in the dugout during Wednesday’s spring training game against St.

Louis.

McCann went 0 for 3 in the Braves’ 6-2 win over a New York

Yankees split squad on Friday. It was his first game since the

54-year-old Salazar was hurt.
