The three RBI tied a season best for McCutchen, who entered with just one RBI over his past eight outings. It has been a trying season for Cutch, who is still hitting just .212 with eight doubles, a triple, seven homers and 23 RBI over 179 at-bats.

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored and two stolen bases in a win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

McCutchen is not exactly setting the fantasy world on fire with his lowly .214 batting average, six homers, 18 runs, 19 RBI and five steals. The former perennial All Star is widely acknowledged to have had a down season in 2016 and things have only gotten worse this year. He will have to crank things up several notches if he is going to be a desirable fantasy hitter again.

It's his first day off this season. Gregory Polanco has moved over to center field and John Jaso will handle right. Josh Harrison and Francisco Cervelli are also sitting out, as the Pirates have Phil Gosselin at second base and Chris Stewart catching.

Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-4 with a strikeout Friday versus the Brewers.

May 6 - 12:57 AM

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-5 and drilled a two-run homer in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

The home run was too little, too late as the Pirates were behind 7-0 in the seventh inning when McCutchen squared up a Cody Reed offering and put it over the wall in left field. He has been hitting well of late but his stats are still recovering from a dismal slump early in the season. He has a .235 batting average with five home runs and 15 RBI.

Andrew McCutchen hit a solo home run and walked twice in a loss to the Yankees on Saturday.

Apr 22 - 9:05 PM

Andrew McCutchen pounded a three-run homer to help lead the Pirates over the Cubs on Saturday.

His blast in the seventh inning plated Adam Frazier and Starling Marte as well as himself, and put his club in the lead to stay. McCutchen struggled mightily in his first few games but has turned things around of late. He hit his first homer on Thursday and already has another. Perhaps his owners can stop panicking. He has his slash line up to .250/.298/.409 and will try to get it up near his career .292/.381/.486 numbers as the season rolls along.
Apr 15 - 9:59 PM

Andrew McCutchen got on the board with his first homer of the year Thursday against the Red Sox.

Apr 13 - 5:40 PM

Andrew McCutchen's bat showed continued signs of coming to life as he went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

That makes two multi-hit games in a row for the Pirates' right fielder. He doubled in the fourth inning but was stranded. He singled to lead off the seventh frame and then strolled home on a David Freese home run. McCutchen has yet to homer or steal a base this year and has driven in just one run. He boosted his slash line to .250/.314/.281 after eight games.
Apr 12 - 10:38 PM

Andrew McCutchen notched a pair of singles and a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

The Pirates drew five walks but mustered just six singles and two runs off of Rookie Davis and the Reds' bullpen. McCutchen is still looking for his first extra-base hit this season, as he'll take an ugly .214/.290/.214 batting line into Wednesday's action.
Apr 12 - 12:04 AM

Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-5 on Wednesday and is 0-for-9 after two games.

At least McCutchen didn't strike out tonight after whiffing three times in the opener. We're rather confident McCutchen will have a bounce-back season this year, but he didn't do anything in the WBC (.238/.273/.286 in 21 AB) or in Grapefruit League action (.192/.241/.385 in 26 AB). It'd be nice to see something encouraging soon.
