Phillies starting left fielder Andrew McCutchen is done for the season after suffering an ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) tear in his left knee during Monday night's (June 3rd) game against the San Diego Padres. It is hoped that McCutchen will be ready to go at the start of next season.
Jay Bruce is expected to get the majority of the starts in left field for the remainder of the season. 2017 first round draft pick Adam Haseley has been called up from Triple A to take McCutchen's spot on the roster. He is expected to get the majority of the starts in center field going forward.
I wish Cutch a speedy recovery and I hope he's in the clubhouse a lot this season since his presence can only help the team.
Talk to you soon,
