Marlon Byrd, hit in the face by a pitch on Saturday, has been realeased from a Boston-area hospital and is headed to the disabled list, the Cubs announced on Sunday.

According to the club, Byrd has multiple facial fractures and will fly home with the team to see specialists this week in Chicago.

Byrd was admitted to a hospital last night after he was hit by a 92 mph fastball from Alfredo Aceves in the second inning of Saturday's game. (See the play here.)

The Cubs will replace Byrd on the roster with reliever Justin Berg.
