Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen (knee) is out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee. He suffered the injury during a rundown in San Diego on Monday. He was having a surprisingly strong season in Philly, so this news is going to hurt tons of fantasy owners. Adam Haseley has been called up, so he should see plenty of at-bats the rest of the way out. The Phillies may look to add another outfield bat as the season rolls on. Newly-acquired Jay Bruce and youngster Haseley will look to fill the void right now.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen (knee) is scheduled to undergo an MRI Tuesday after leaving the game Monday night. McCutchen injured his left knee while in a rundown and needed to be helped off the field. Fantasy owners will need to wait for the results of the MRI, but it's not a good sign the Phillies already plan to call up Adam Haseley and have him join the team across the country in San Diego. If McCutchen winds up on the Injured List, that should mean more at-bats for the recently acquired Jay Bruce as well as Scott Kingery. It could also boost the value of Cesar Hernandez who should see more time batting leadoff as he did for most of last year.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen (knee) was helped off the field after being caught in a rundown in the first inning of Monday night's game against the San Diego Padres. He was limping noticeably as he was helped to the bench. McCutchen reached based on a walk. He's hitting .256 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI on the season. More news should come on the injury in the coming hours.
