According to John Perrotto of FanRag Sports, the Pirates aren't looking to shop Andrew McCutchen until the offseason.
The Pirates have been plummeting in the NL Central race, fueling speculation that the Bucs will become sellers at the trade deadline. They still might—Francisco Liriano and Mark Melancon are logical trade candidates—but McCutchen won't be part of that discussion. However, the team could entertain offers for McCutchen this winter in anticipation of top outfield prospect Austin Meadows' big-league debut in 2017. McCutchen is having his worst season, though he did bop a pair of home runs Saturday off Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda. Jun 27 - 8:36 AM

Andrew McCutchen was ejected from Sunday's game against the Dodgers for arguing a called third strike call.

McCutchen doesn't get visibly frustrated often, but he let his emotions spill over in this one on what was a questionable third strike call. He'll catch the rest of this game from the clubhouse.
Jun 26 - 10:47 PM

Andrew McCutchen hit a solo homer in the fourth inning, then trumped that with a three-run bomb in the sixth to carry the Pirates to a 6-1 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.

The two home runs give McCutchen 12 for the season. He has been a major disappointment for his fantasy owners so far this year but he gave them a big treat today. McCutchen played poorly in the early part of last season before coming on strong in the second half, perhaps today is an indication he will repeat that cycle this year. He is now batting .243 with 41 runs, 32 RBI and only two steals.
Jun 25 - 10:37 PM

Andrew McCutchen is getting the day off Thursday afternoon against the Giants.

Gregory Polanco will start in center field and Matt Joyce will start in right. Sean Rodriguez is in left for Starling Marte, who has a foot injury. This is just a routine day of maintenance for McCutchen.
Jun 23 - 10:24 AM

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.

The three-hit game was the first in over a month for McCutchen, who has struggled in the first half for the second consecutive season. His struggles have been amplified this month, as this was his first homer since May 27 and his 10th overall. The 29-year-old, whose name may even sneak into trade rumors if the Pirates continue to flounder, is batting .242/.319/.418 in 63 games.
Jun 16 - 10:23 PM

Andrew McCutchen (thumb) is back in the Pirates' lineup Monday against the Mets.

McCutchen was given the day off Sunday to rest a lingering issue with his right thumb. He's going to try to continue to play through it for now.
Jun 6 - 5:13 PM

Andrew McCutchen left Thursday's game against the Marlins with right thumb discomfort.

It's unclear when or how McCutchen got hurt. Starling Marte replaced him in center field in the bottom of the sixth with Sean Rodriguez taking over in left. McCutchen was hitless in three at-bats before exiting. We should know more on McCutchen's status after the game. Until then, consider him day-to-day.
Jun 2 - 9:23 PM

Andrew McCutchen is not in the Pirates starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rockies.

He'll get a day of rest while Matt Joyce patrols right field and bats sixth for the Pirates against Tyler Chatwood and the Rockies. McCutchen is off to a bit of a slow start, by his standards, this season, slashing .248/.337/.467 with eight homers, 19 RBI and only one stolen base.
May 21 - 12:04 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's loss to the Cubs.

The top of the Pirates' lineup did damage, with the 1-4 hitters piling up eight hits, but they couldn't keep up with the Cubs. McCutchen has homered in consecutive games and now has eight longballs and 16 RBI on the season.
May 13 - 5:37 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-4 and blasted his seventh homer of the year in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

McCutchen extended his hit streak to six games with a solo shot off Alfredo Simon in the fourth inning. He's 9-for-28 (.321) during this current streak, and he's slowly recovering from a slow start to the season -- though power hasn't been in short supply whatsoever, with seven homers and a .217 ISO.
May 11 - 11:46 PM

Andrew McCutchen slugged a solo homer and had an RBI groundout in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

He drove in the Pirates' lone two runs on the night, as Jason Hammel and the Cubs' bullpen mostly held down the fort. McCutchen is hitting a disappointing .228/.339/.455 on the season and tweaked his troublesome left knee over the weekend, but he has at least smacked six homers.
May 2 - 11:18 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Andrew McCutchen's left knee "just felt a little cranky" on Saturday.

McCutchen is back in the lineup Sunday, so it doesn't appear this is something to worry about at the moment. However, keep in mind that he dealt with a knee issue early last season, as well, so it's certainly an item that needs to be filed away. McCutchen entered play Sunday batting just .226/.339/.441 on the season.
May 1 - 3:39 PM

Andrew McCutchen had a day Tuesday, hitting three home runs with five RBI to lead the Pirates to a 9-4 win over the Rockies.

Cutch hit solo jobs in the first and second before launching a three-run shot in the sixth. For reference, he had just two home runs and five RBI in his first 19 games before Tuesday's outburst. We played the "What's wrong with Andrew McCutchen?" game last April as well, and all he did was go on to finish fifth in NL MVP voting. Because nothing is wrong with Andrew McCutchen. Not then, not now, not ever. Next question.
Apr 27 - 12:37 AM

Andrew McCutchen is not in Monday's lineup against the Rockies.

It's his first off-day of the season. Starling Marte will start in center field while Matt Joyce will play left and bat second.
Apr 25 - 6:31 PM

Andrew McCutchen hit his second homer in as many days in Sunday's win over the Brewers, finishing 1-for-6.

While McCutchen did connect for a solo shot off Chris Capuano in the fifth inning, it was a less-than-stellar game for him on the whole. He left a team-high six runners on base during Sunday's contest. At least the power was there, though. He had been homer-less through the first half of April until he rocked one off Taylor Jungmann on Saturday. Which he promptly followed up with Sunday's blast. The Brewers could be marketed as the cure for the common power drought. McCutchen is off to a 13-for-52 (.250) start with four doubles, two homers and four RBI. As with all of your established top-tier fantasy options, there is no reason, at all, to worry about early scuffles here.
