Pirates star Andrew McCutchen done for season after partial Achilles tear - ESPN
PITTSBURGH -- Andrew McCutchen's feel-good season is over.
The Pittsburgh Pirates designated hitter is heading to the 10-day injured list after partially tearing his left Achilles tendon while legging out a double in a victory over Milwaukee on Monday night.
The 36-year-old McCutchen said initially he was "fine," but further examination by the Pirates medical staff revealed the tear. Director of Sports Medicine Todd Tomczyk said Wednesday that McCutchen will be in a walking boot for six weeks but that there has been no discussion of surgery.
