The Phillies had many injuries derail their 2019 campaign, but one of them might have been more impactful than the rest.

ESPN's MLB writer David Schoenfield made a list of one player on each team “we should appreciate more when baseball resumes.”

Outfielder Andrew McCuthen was his pick for the Phillies.

Here's rooting for a big comeback for McCutchen from his knee injury. Obviously, he isn't going to regain his 2012-15 peak, when he finished third, first, third and fifth in the MVP voting, but he has still been an above-average hitter every season of his career. At 33, the best-case scenario for Cutch is something like Moises Alou, who missed his entire age-32 season after tearing his ACL in a treadmill accident. Alou returned and hit .355 at age 33. Maybe that bar is a little high, but Alou kept hitting until he was 40.

McCuthen was the Phillies primarily lead off hitter before he went down with a ACL injury last season. The former MVP hit .256 with 10 homers, 29 RBI and two steals in his debut season for Philadelphia.

The 33-year-old will likely be right back at the top of the Phillies lineup once baseball resumes.
