UPDATE: McCutchen told Sanserino after the game that he doesn’t anticipate missing any time.

5:30 PM: Cross your fingers, Pirates fans.

According to Michael Sanserino of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Andrew McCutchen left this afternoon’s game against the Cardinals due to soreness in his left wrist.

McCutchen injured the wrist while making a diving catch to rob Carlos Beltran of a hit in the bottom of the third inning. He stayed in the game initially, taking two more at-bats, but was replaced in center field by Alex Presley in the bottom of the seventh inning. He’s currently being treated and evaluated, after which the Pirates will announce an update on his status.

McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a run scored this afternoon and is hitting .346/.401/.593 with 15 homers, 51 RBI, 14 stolen bases and a .993 OPS through 74 games this season. It goes without saying, but the Pirates would have a really tough time staying afloat in the playoff race if he requires an extended absence.

      In real news, not an injury.

    Cutch, Votto & Strasburg all left early. Hopefully none of them is out for an extended period of time. They’re all very fun to watch.

    Ugh the glue that holds this team together. No sweat, he’s fine McClutchen for president!!
