Lance McCullers Jr. is going to miss his opportunity to pitch in the World Series. The Astros ace pitcher confirmed on Monday that he will miss the series with a forearm injury. McCullers has been sidelined since exiting the divisional series and was given a 6-to-8 week recovery timeline, putting an end to his season. The right-hander said it's "disappointing and disheartening" that he can't compete in this year's Fall Classic.
