PITTSBURGH (AP) - Andrew McCutchen has a broken bone in his ribcage wo days after being hit by a pitch, but the Pittsburgh Pirates center fielder and last year's NL MVP hopes to avoid going on the disabled list.
McCutchen left in the eighth inning of Sunday's loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks at Phoenix after feeling pain in his side when he swung at a pitch. He had to be helped down the dugout steps to the clubhouse and needed help getting dressed after the game.
McCutchen said he couldn't be sure if getting hit caused the injury but that he has ''taken a million swings and have never felt anything in my side until Sunday.''
