Fangraphs: Andrew McCutchen’s Injury Is A Huge Blow

In the original draft of this post, this portion talked about how it was at least plausible that being hit in the back one night and coming up with a strained oblique (which is what this really looked like) the next night could be unrelated. We could infer, but not say for sure. Pirates fans could be angry at the Diamondbacks, but no one could be certain. Now, it’s come out that McCutchen actually fractured a rib – he has *deep breath* “an avulsion fracture involving the costochondral cartilage of the left 11th rib” – and so what can I say other than: Have at it, Pittsburgh. It certainly seems like your season has been irreparably altered by a gutless act from a terrible team with a bad reputation, even if there’s at least some opinions that say otherwise.

Anyway, regardless of the cause, the Pirates now need to try to win without their best player for some amount of time…
