Andrew McCutchen to give elbow armor a try

HardballTalk

Pirates fans collectively held their breath when All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen was hit on the left elbow with a Julio Teheran offering in the first inning of Saturday’s game. X-rays came back negative, allowing for a giant, collective sigh of relief.

Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that McCutchen will start utilizing elbow protection. “Looks like I got to now,” he said.

McCutchen among seven players in baseball who have been hit by at least eight pitches this year. The Pirates as a unit lead the major leagues with 40 HBP’s. “I’m not the only the one ticked off,” McCutchen said, per Sawchik. “We’re all ticked off.”
