Game thread: Andrew McCutchen scratched as Casey Sadler takes on Twins

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Here are today's lineups as the Pirates take on the Twins (1:05, webcast on Andrew McCutchen has been removed from the lineup with "lower-body soreness," which could mean anything from a bruised toe to a strained hamstring to ... well, who knows. My guess is that it isn't particularly serious, however, or someone (a reporter, or perhaps the Pirates themselves) would be making more of it. With McCutchen out for the day, Jaff Decker will play center field and bat sixth; Jung-Ho Kang will bat third.
