The Pittsburgh Pirates have scratched Andrew McCutchen from tonight’s game on the road against the Red Sox due to tightness in his left quadriceps. The team announced that he worked out earlier today at McKechnie Field and the move was just made as a precaution. If there are any updates later, we will post them here.
Jason Rogers, who was removed from yesterday’s lineup late due to illness, is in the lineup today. Starling Marte moved over to center field to take McCutchen’s spot tonight, while Tito Polo has been inserted into the lineup, batting eighth and playing right field.
