James McDonald Injured

70

No details yet, but he left the game today with an apparent wrist injury. UPDATE: It looks like the P-G has this wrong - Rob Biertempfel says it's Andrew McCutchen who has the wrist issue, and McDonald left the game with a "left side" injury, and this is what the Pirates themselves report as well. It sounds like we'll probably get bigger updates tomorrow. Obviously, serious injuries to both would be almost absurdly bad for the Pirates. It's not as if this news necessarily portends anything serious, however. UPDATE 1:11 PM Saturday: Jenifer Langosch notes that McCutchen is back in the lineup today, so phew on that. It sounds like we don't know much more about McDonald's condition than we did yesterday, but he isn't even sure he's going to be missing a start, so that's good. Also, Ryan Doumit is out "until further notice" with an oblique strain, Chris Snyder is day-to-day with back trouble, and Scott Olsen is pitching BP and readying for his Spring debut.
