Phillies outfielder McCutchen has torn ACL, out for season
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Andrew McCutchen has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season.
Phillies manager Gabe Kapler made the announcement before Tuesday night's game at San Diego.
McCutchen injured his left knee during a rundown Monday and exited the game against the Padres.
The 32-year-old McCutchen was hitting .256 with 10 home runs and 29 RBIs for the NL East leaders. The 2013 NL MVP was in the first season of a $50 million, three-year contract.
Last weekend, the Phillies acquired outfielder Jay Bruce in a trade with Seattle.
McCutchen drew a leadoff walk in the first inning Monday and Jean Segura followed with a popup that second baseman Ian Kinsler let drop. Kinsler threw to first to get Segura, and McCutchen was hurt as he tried to elude the tag getting back to first.
