Breathe easy, Pirates fans.

Andrew McCutchen, star center fielder who leads the team in hits, runs, RBIs, batting average, on-base percentage and a host of other categories, appeared to escape serious injury Saturday after landing awkwardly on his left wrist while making a diving catch in the Pirates' 7-3 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Officially diagnosed with a left wrist sprain, McCutchen left the game in the seventh inning -- several innings after robbing Carlos Beltran of a bloop single in right-center field in the third. He remained on the ground for several seconds, grimacing and clutching his left wrist before heading to the dugout.

"I thought it was awesome, and then I thought he was hurt," pitcher Jeff Karstens said of the play. "Then, I was like, 'God, I wish he would have missed it and not [dived].' He's our best player. There's no ifs and buts about it. He's electric. He changes the game. You never want to see something like that."

McCutchen had his wrist examined through a fluoroscope, which is like a real-time X-ray, and the results indicated a sprain and nothing more.
