MIAMI (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Nolan Arenado left Wednesday’s game against Miami after being hit in the right elbow by a fastball from Marlins reliever Huascar Brazoban in the eighth inning.

Arenado collapsed into a heap after the pitch struck first his elbow and then his midsection. He remained on the ground for about two minutes before he was escorted to the dugout by a Cardinals trainer.

The team said he suffered a bruised elbow and was undergoing further evaluation.

Arenado, an eight-time All-Star, is hitting .260 with six homers and 32 RBIs.

He was replaced by pinch-runner José Fermín.
