Phillies centerfielder Andrew McCutchen is out for the rest of the 2019 season after suffering a torn left ACL during a rundown in Monday's loss to the Padres.

McCutchen was forced into a rundown when the Padres intentionally dropped a pop-up, and as he went back-and-forth, he looked to cut around a Padre blocking his path back to first base, when he tried to juke to his right, and quickly grabbed his left knee in pain.

The centerfielder underwent an MRI in San Diego on Tuesday which revealed the injury.

Adam Haseley had his contracted selected from Lehigh Valley and will make the start in centerfield on Tuesday night.

Recently-acquired Jay Bruce suddenly moves into the starting line-up, where he'll play in left field. Scott Kingery also is an option for the Phillies in the outfield.

McCutchen leads the majors with 43 walks, and was hitting .265 with 10 home runs and 29 RBI when he suffered the injury.
