Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen is dealing with left knee inflammation. He left Friday night’s game against the Colorado Rockies.

With this injury, manager Gabe Kapler may give him at least Saturday off with this injury. Depending on how McCutchen is feeling, he may also get Easter Sunday off as well.

Before Saturday’s contest, the Phillies should give the media an update on his condition.

The 32-year-old Fort Meade, Florida native went 1 of 2 in the contest before being replaced by Aaron Altherr. He had one hit and a strikeout with two walks.

McCutchen also scored a run.

In the off-season, he signed a three-year, $50 million deal with the Phillies.

Through 19 games, he has a .257 batting average with three home runs and eight RBIs. He also has five doubles and one triple on 18 hits.

McCutchen also scored 17 runs.
