Pirates exercised OF Andrew McCutchen's $14.5 million option for 2018.
McCutchen went through some peaks and valleys this past season, but he hit .279/.363/.486 with 28 homers overall so picking up his option was a shoo-in. The possibility exists, however, that the Pirates might shop him in trades this offseason. Nov 3 - 3:33 PM

Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that Andrew McCutchen will be the team's center fielder if he's still with the club in 2018.

"We believe our best club in 2018 has Andrew in center field," said Huntington. "He's worked hard to be the best defensive center fielder he can be." The original plan called for McCutchen to play right field this year, but he shifted back to center after Starling Marte's PED suspension and remained there for the rest of the season. It's a foregone conclusion that the Pirates will exercise his $14.75 million club option for 2018, but it's his final year of team control and he remains an obvious candidate to be traded. McCutchen had an up-and-down season in 2017, batting .279/.363/.486 with 28 homers, 88 RBI, and 11 steals over 156 games.

Andrew McCutchen (foot) is back in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

'Cutch was a late scratch Saturday after he fouled a ball off his left foot Friday, but he's feeling well enough to give it a go in the season finale. Could it be his final game in a Pirates uniform?
Oct 1 - 11:43 AM

Andrew McCutchen was scratched from the Pirates' lineup Saturday due to left foot discomfort.

McCutchen fouled a ball off the foot Friday and is still sore. The Pirates obviously have no incentive to push him, so it's possible he's done for the season. Jordan Luplow replaced him in the lineup.
Sep 30 - 5:42 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Friday’s loss to the Nationals.

The Pirates were held scoreless until his double in the ninth inning. McCutchen dropped off significantly in August, but he has been a useful fantasy bat here in September. He’s now hit safely in each of his last six games.

Andrew McCutchen had a night for the ages Tuesday against the Orioles, going 4-for-4 with a pair of home runs and a career-high eight RBI.

'Cutch doubled in a run in the first and then launched a grand slam -- which was the first of his career -- in the second. After singling in the fifth, he had a shot at a cycle in the sixth if he could triple. Instead, he settled for a three-run home run. McCutchen was lifted from the game after that. The former MVP went deep just once in August but has now hit five in September, giving him 28 on the season.

Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

McCutchen was one of the NL's best players in June and July, but he's limping to the finish line now, hitting just .223 with three homers and nine RBI in his last 37 games. It's still going to end up as a better season than his 2016, but this is shaping up as quite a disappointment, compared to where he was six weeks ago.
Sep 19 - 10:45 PM

Andrew McCutchen finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's loss at Cincinnati.

It wasn't all great for Cutch as he was caught stealing for the fourth time this season, but he did have an outfield assist. After a very slow start by his standards, McCutchen is up to .279/.362/.481 while posting 26 home runs and 79 RBI. He certainly has made up for lost time in the second half.
Sep 16 - 9:46 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs scored during a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday.

He got the Pirates on the board first with a dinger off starter Chase Anderson in the opening frame but it was all downhill from there for his squad. The 30-year-old former National League MVP is having a good season, slashing .274/.362/.477 with 25 home runs, 78 RBI, 85 runs and 11 stolen bases in 142 games.
Sep 14 - 12:32 AM

Andrew McCutchen homered in the Pirates' win over the Brewers on Monday.

McCutchen opened the game's scoring with a two-run shot off Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff in the top of the first inning. He also drew a walk in the 7-0 victory, finishing 1-for-4 with two RBI and one run scored. The veteran outfielder is slashing .275/.364/.473 with 24 home runs, 77 RBI, and 83 runs in 140 games this season.
Sep 11 - 11:20 PM

Andrew McCutchen is absent from the Pirates' lineup Friday.

It's a rare day off for the veteran outfielder. Starling Marte has slid over to center field, Jordan Luplow is in left and the newly-activation Gregory Polanco is in right.
Sep 8 - 4:13 PM

Andrew McCutchen singled twice and stole a base Tuesday versus the Cubs.

The stolen base was McCutchen's first since August 7 and his 11th of the season. That might not seem like much, but he's only been caught three times and is fairly encouraging after he swiped just six bags last season. McCutchen needs one more pilfer for a three-year high.
Sep 5 - 9:54 PM

Andrew McCutchen is absent from the Pirates' lineup Friday.

'Cutch has had a minor knee issue this month, but this is just a day off for him. Starling Marte has slid over to center field and Adam Frazier and John Jaso are in the corners.
Aug 25 - 4:23 PM

Andrew McCutchen (knee) is back in the Pirates' starting lineup Sunday at Toronto.

McCutchen missed Saturday's game after making an early exit Friday with discomfort in his left knee. He will DH and bat third versus Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ.
Aug 13 - 12:25 PM

Andrew McCutchen (knee) is absent from the Pirates' starting lineup on Saturday.

McCutchen indicated he's feeling better after leaving Friday's game with discomfort in his left knee, but the club will take a cautious approach and give him a day to rest just to be sure. Look for him to get back in there for Sunday's series finale.
