Andrew McCutchen Out For Season With Torn ACL

Andrew McCutchen Out For Season With Torn ACL

Eric Lauer counters for San Diego, and he's fresh off a one-run, four-hit performance (5 1/3 innings) against the red-hot Yankees on May 28.

Even more important, Bruce's solid performance helped the Phillies put an end to their embarrassing five-game losing streak that resulted in some fans wanting to hit the panic button.

Hector Neris pitched the ninth for his 11th save.

The Phillies received a brutal injury blow Tuesday, as outfielder Andrew McCutchen was diagnosed with a torn left ACL and will miss the remainder of the season (Twitter link via The Athletic's Matt Gelb).

"It's really disappointing", Kapler said of McCutchen's injury. Haseley, their top pick from the 2017 draft, was promoted and thrust into the starting lineup after only a handful games at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cricket South Africa - selecting AB would not have been fair
India on Wednesday defeated South Africa by six wickets in their opening World Cup encounter after restricting them to 227 for 9. Therefore, South Africa will be aiming to make a strong comeback in the tournament, but nothing is going well for the Proteas.


Jay Bruce wasted little time in making his presence felt with the Philadelphia Phillies.

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. Kingery sent a 91 miles per hour fastball into the second deck of the left-field seats.

Seven homers were hit in the game. Scott Kingery was 2-for-4 with a home run, a double and two RBIs. That he did so after the developments with McCutchen didn't go unnoticed. "For him to come in here and do that was huge". Video footage has arrived online showing the play on which McCutchen was hurt. That homer was also the front end of a set of back-to-back homers against rookie Padres starter Chris Paddack (4-4). Bruce made his Phillies debut Monday night when McCutchen left the game.

Speaking of future, the Phillies also have to make a decision on what they're going to do with him.
