Update: McCutchen scratched


CHICAGO — Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen was scratched from the lineup today due to neck stiffness. Jose Tabata will start in center field, with Matt Diaz in left and Garrett Jones in right.

Before the game, McCutchen convinced the coaches to keep him in the lineup, even though he clearly was in a lot of discomfort. He was scratched about a half-hour before the start of the game.

There is no immediate word — nor do we expect to get one from the Pirates, who have become increasinly close-lipped about anything relating to injuries — about how much time McCutchen may miss.



  1. UPDATED LINEUP: Tabata 8, Jones 9, Walker 4, Overbay 3, Alvarez 5, Diaz 7, Jaramillo 2, Cedeno 6, Ohlendorf rhp
