Getting hit in the hand with no structural damage and playing the NEXT DAY does NOT make you a "tough kid". I got hit in the hand by a 85 mph fastball from a 6'5" pitcher my junior year in high school (the guy was an all-district pitcher and went to college on a basketball scholarship)...I didn't miss any playing time. The coach checked my hand...he asked if I was okay...he asked me to make a fist...I squeezed his hand...and he asked if I could swing the bat...two pitches later I lined out into a double play (SS caught a line drive between 3rd and short wheeled and through out the runner at first who thought I had a sure base hit).
I guess what I am trying to say...BIG DEAL. He likes playing baseball and he is healthy. That is NOT the definition of a "tough kid".

X-rays of Andrew McCutchen's left hand did not reveal a fracture. He has been diagnosed wih a bone contusion and is listed as day-to-day.
I've got cutch and am concerned by this event as well. All I've read so far is that at first he was going to stay in so there is hope that it is only precautionary. Let's hope that when they finish with their tests the news is good. Anyone who doesn't think that Cutch is a very valuable fantasy player isn't paying attention. (This is the nice version of what Dick would say)
