Andrew McCutchen homered twice and finished 3-for-5 with three RBI and three runs scored in the Pirates' 15-2 shellacking of the Phillies on Thursday.

Cutch hit a pair of solo homers, one in the fourth inning and one in the eighth, and added an RBI single in the Pirates' eight-run ninth inning for good measure. He's now homered in two straight games and has 23 on the year, a sneaky number considering his well-documented struggles. The outfielder is hitting .250/.331/.426 overall, but reports of his death have clearly been greatly exaggerated.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 and hit a solo home run in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

The shot off Jake Thompson produced the Pirates' first run but they were already down by four and well on their way to losing. The home run was McCutchen's 21st of the season. His power this year has been right where it usually is but everything else is way down. He is batting just .245/.327/.407 with 62 RBI and six stolen bases. His poor performance has ruined playoff chances for the Pirates and most of his fantasy owners.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a double in Friday’s loss to the Brewers.

The Pirates have now lost four in a row, but at least McCutchen continues to show signs of life. Unfortunately, all three of his hits on Friday came with two outs and nobody on. It has been a disappointing season for McCutchen, but he’s coming off a strong August and is capable of finishing strong.
Sep 2 - 10:41 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI, including the game-winning RBI single in the 10th inning, to lead the Pirates past the Brewers 3-2 on Thursday.

Cutch was up to the task all evening, hitting a solo homer in the first before knocking an RBI single in the third and his game-winner in the 10th. The homer was his 18th of the season to give him 55 RBI and 65 runs scored. It's still not the Andrew McCutchen we've come to know and expect, but he's now hitting .303 in the month of August and is batting .250/.329/.419 in 116 games overall.
Aug 26 - 12:28 AM

Andrew McCutchen is out of the Pirates' lineup on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros.

Starling Marte is in center field, Gregory Polanco is in left field, and Matt Joyce is in right field in the afternoon tilt versus Houston right-hander Collin McHugh. This appears to be a routine day of rest for McCutchen, who's been hitting the ball well in August.
Aug 24 - 10:15 AM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

No true fireworks here for McCutchen, but he could use any hits he can get given the way this season has unfolded for him. The star outfielder is slashing a measly .246/.326/.411 with 17 homers and 51 RBI over 443 at-bats. With a little over a month remaining in the season, those numbers aren't likely to see a major turnaround barring an insane hot streak.
Aug 21 - 6:13 PM

Andrew McCutchen came up clutch with a two-run home run in the fifth inning of Wednesday's 6-5 win over the Giants.

McCutchen whacked homer No. 17 off veteran starter Matt Cain in the fifth inning. His dinger snapped a 4-4 tie. While the Giants would come back with a run in the ninth to draw within one, the final score would stand at 6-5 Pirates. McCutchen's season has been a downright disappointment on the whole, as the All-Star outfielder is hitting just .248/.329/.418 with 17 homers and 51 RBI across 431 at-bats. A silver lining, though: McCutchen has picked up hits in eight of his last 10 games and has now notched multi-hit efforts in each of his last three. He has the talent to help carry a fantasy team to glory if he suddenly finds a magic groove.
Aug 17 - 11:19 PM

Andrew McCutchen showed signs of life Friday, going 2-for-4 with a homer and a steal in the Pirates' 5-1 win over the Dodgers.

McCutchen had gone 16 days since his last multihit game or homer. The steal was his fifth of the year. He's been successful on each of his last three attempts after going 2-for-7 the first three months.
Aug 13 - 1:37 AM

Andrew McCutchen finished 0-for-3 with a walk Thursday against the Padres.

McCutchen has seven walks in six games since returning from his four-day break last week, but he's just 4-for-18 with no extra-base hits, one RBI and one run scored during the span. There's little to suggest he's about to return to being a top fantasy outfielder.
Aug 11 - 3:59 PM

Andrew McCutchen stroked one hit on Wednesday, which ended up being half the Pirates' total for the game.

It was a pathetic batting display by Pittsburgh as they were shut down by the not-so-elite Edwin Jackson of San Diego. McCutchen has been unable to turn around a very disappointing season. He is hitting just .242 with 15 homers, 58 runs, 44 RBI and four steals. That is not awful but nowhere near what his owners were expecting when they drafted him.
Aug 10 - 10:18 PM

The Pittsburgh Tribune's Rob Biertempfel reports that Andrew McCutchen will not play in Thursday's game against the Braves.

McCutchen will end up sitting out the entire three-game set against the Braves, as he wasn't in the lineup on Tuesday and is not in the lineup on Wednesday. The star outfielder has struggled mightily in 2016, slashing just .241/.311/.408 in 97 games.
Aug 3 - 4:16 PM

Andrew McCutchen is out again Wednesday.

He also sat out Tuesday as part of what seems to be a mental rest initiative. McCutchen owns a weak .241/.311/.408 batting line in 97 games this year for Pittsburgh.
Aug 3 - 3:48 PM

Andrew McCutchen is getting a day off Tuesday.

Starling Marte will start in center field and Matt Joyce will start in left versus the Braves. McCutchen has a weak .719 OPS in 97 games this season for the Bucs.
Aug 2 - 6:38 PM

Andrew McCutchen crushed a three-run bomb Wednesday and finished the night 3-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored.

The home run gave him 15 for the season to go with his .246 batting average, 56 runs, 42 RBI and three steals. Those stats are far, far below what his owners expected. Games like today's have been few and far between this year for the perennial fantasy stud.
