Phillies’ McCutchen out for sea­son with torn ACL

Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - — Bob Brookover, The Philadel­phia In­quirer

An­drew McCutchen will miss the rest of the Philadel­phia Phillies’ sea­son with a torn left ACL.

The 32-year-old out­fielder in­jured his knee while in a run­down in the first in­ning of the Phillies 8-2 loss to the San Diego Padres Mon­day night.

Phillies man­ager Gabe Kapler said after the game that the newly signed free agent had a knee sprain and would be get­ting fur­ther test­ing done, and McCutchen tweeted “Pray for me. Please” after the game.

McCutchen, who signed a three­year, $50 mil­lion con­tract last off­sea­son, had been play­ing well, hit­ting .256 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs as the Phillies’ lead­off hit­ter.

The Phillies are also with­out cen­ter fielder Odubel Her­rera while he is on “ad­min­is­tra­tive leave” fol­low­ing ac­cu­sa­tions that he as­saulted his girl­friend on Me­mo­rial Day. He will be gone at least un­til June 17, and pos­si­bly much longer.
