An industry source tells Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Rob Biertempfel that the Pirates could be willing to pay Andrew McCutchen $25 million per year on a long-term extension.
It's newsworthy for the fact that the Bucs are notoriously conservative with their spending. Still, that's the sort of money McCutchen, 28, would currently command on the open market. For now there are no talks, as the outfielder is signed to a team-friendly deal through 2017 with a club option for 2018. The longer they put off an extension, the more he might command when his contract comes due, though. Feb 25 - 6:18 PM

Andrew McCutchen homered off the Braves' Aaron Harang for the only run in the Pirates' 1-0 victory on Monday.

McCutchen has been a better hitter this year than he was in his MVP season, with the caveat that he has missed 15 games. The sentiment is growing for Clayton Kershaw to win MVP honors, but McCutchen is as good a choice as any to be the top position player on the ballot.

The ball took a friendly carom towards right-center, and McCutchen was able to breeze home standing up, tying the game at 3-3. He now has 23 home runs, 75 RBI, and a .311/.403/.539 slash line.

Andrew McCutchen (rib) expects to be back in the Pirates' lineup Wednesday.

McCutchen exited Tuesday's contest after aggravating his rib fracture when he slammed into the outfield wall while making a catch. However, he downplayed the ailment after the game. "Just sore," McCutchen said. "Being smart." It's not clear whether the Pirates share the outfielder's optimism regarding his chances of playing Wednesday, but the good news is that it doesn't appear McCutchen suffered a serious setback.

With the rust off, the All-Star should continue to produce moving forward.
