News: McCutchen described his ankle injury as one of the nagging - albeit non-serious - variety.

News: McCutchen (ankle) is in the Pirates' lineup Saturday in Milwaukee, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Impact: Despite emerging from Friday's game with discomfort in his left ankle, it's business as usual Saturday for McCutchen, who is taking on center field and batting third in the order. He'll attempt to break out of an 0-for-10 blip on the radar, though he boasts a 3:4 BB:K and two stolen bases during that brief span.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 12, 2014
News: After leaving Friday's game with pain in his ankle, McCutchen returned Saturday with a 2-for-4 performance against the Brewers. Impact: McCutchen's pair of hits, including a double, off Yovani Gallardo were his first hits in 10 at-bats, so it's nice to see one of the league's best hitters get back on track after a mild slump and injury scare. On the season, McCutchen now owns a .225 average and has yet to homer in 11 games, but he should heat up soon enough.(RotoWire, )
