Phillies OF Andrew McCutchen Out for Season With Torn ACL


McCutchen said after the game he did not think he suffered a torn ACL. Adam Haseley, the Phillies first round pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, has been brought to the majors. He also had 10 home runs and 29 RBI while playing a solid center field in 59 games.

A five-time All-Star and the 2013 NL MVP, McCutchen signed a three-year, $50 million deal this offseason.

McCutchen had been on the injured list only once before, back in 2014 when he starred for Pittsburgh. "Overall a good W, a good inning for the ballclub so we really thrive off that".

McCutchen was already on first and attempting to get to second base. "So it is a loss".

The Phillies, after Herrera was placed on leave, traded for Jay Bruce, who is only a corner outfielder. He also had 12 doubles and one triple on 56 hits, while scoring 45 runs. He's proven at the minor league level he is ready for this.

"It's not a finished product".

However I Will Say this, If Bryce Harper Gets Hurt and Is Out For Any Length Of time The Phillies Are In Deep Trouble. Harper played there in the past with Washington, but has only been in right field since joining the Phillies this season. With the money being paid out to players like Bryce Harper and McCutchen, the Phillies will need to find young, low-priced talent to fill in around them.

The right-hander was flawless through 4 2/3 innings before Christian Walker caught up to a high 98 miles per hour fastball, driving it above the 413-foot mark in left-center field for a home run.

After the game, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler characterized the injury as a sprain, though he said McCutchen would undergo an MRI on Tuesday. "Something felt uncomfortable, something that made me grab my knee and go down. There have been plenty of guys who have had worse injuries than I have and have come back even stronger". "This didn't feel like that".
