TAMPA, Fla. -- 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 the St. Louis Cardinals.

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.
