First it was Paul Goldschmidt landing on the disabled list for the Arizona Diamondbacks, thanks to a pitch just a bit inside, yet unintentional, on his day off!
Then the Diamondbacks retaliated and intentionally plunked Andrew McCutchen in the back, Randall Delgado was ejected.
A few ABs later the next night, McCutchen tweaked his back and now the Pittsburgh Pirates and fantasy owners everywhere will be without McClutch for the rest of August.
