Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Friday’s loss to the Cubs.

McCutchen had two singles and a double. He now has three three-hit games in his last four and has raised his batting average all the way up to .295 for the year. Keep in mind that he was at the .200 mark back on May 23. It’s been an incredible turnaround.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Phillies.

After winning the National League Player of the Month award for June, Cutch hasn't slowed down in July. The 30-year-old is 8-for-21 with four doubles, two homers and six runs scored to start the month, and his overall line is up to .289/.375/.520. One of these years he may fail to overcome the slow starts that have become a sort of hallmark in recent seasons, but for now he's still closer to the MVP candidate he once was than the also-ran some had written him off as in May.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's victory over the Phillies.

He took Mark Leiter deep in the sixth inning and then finished off his day with another dinger off of Ricardo Pinto in the eighth. As outstanding as McCutchen has been since late May, these were his first two homers in his last 12 games. His season line is up to .288/.375/.519. On May 23 it was .200/.271/.359.

Andrew McCutchen is not in the Pirates' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a breather. Josh Harrison and David Freese are also receiving a day off, as the Pirates have John Jaso, Gregory Polanco and Jose Osuna in the outfield, Adam Frazier at second base and Max Moroff at third.

Andrew McCutchen (ankle) returned to the Pirates' starting lineup on Saturday.

He was lifted from Friday's game after fouling a ball off of his left ankle, but is good to go on Saturday. He's hitting third for the Pirates against Giants' left-hander Matt Moore on Saturday.

Andrew McCutchen was removed from Friday's game against the Giants after fouling a ball off of his left ankle.

The game had already been out of reach, so his departure was for precautionary reasons. Expect him to return to action on Saturday. McCutchen wrapped up one of the finest months of his career, slashing a ridiculous .411/.505/.689 with six homers and 23 RBI.
Jul 1 - 9:43 AM's Jon Morosi reports that the Pirates "have yet to engage in serious dialogue" with teams interested in Andrew McCutchen.

It's not really surprising, as we're still a month away from the trade deadline and the direction some teams choose to take is still up in the air. That said, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal wrote earlier this month that the odds of the Pirates ultimately trading 'Cutch are "good," so we expect plenty of rumors involving the former MVP over the next few weeks. Morosi lists the Rangers and Twins as possible fits for McCutchen.

Andrew McCutchen went 3-for-3 with a double and an RBI as the Pirates blanked the Rays 4-0 on Thursday.

Cutch broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single in the third inning, and he also walked in the game. Left for dead by some owners -- sounds familiar, right -- as recently as the beginning of this month, the 30-year-old has revived faith in him by hitting .398 with six homers, 23 RBI and 22 runs scored in June. The incredible month has his overall numbers back from the grave as well, slashing a healthy .278/.361/.491 overall.
Jun 29 - 11:42 PM

Andrew McCutchen came through with a game-tying two-run double in the ninth inning on Tuesday, but the Pirates still fell in extra innings to the Rays.

John Jaso started the rally by getting hit by a pitch and advanced to third on a double by Josh Harrison, setting the stage for McCutchen's dramatics against Rays' closer Alex Colome. He finished the evening 2-for-4 and is now slashing .272/.351/.486 with 14 homers, 46 RBI and six stolen bases on the season.
Jun 27 - 10:34 PM

Andrew McCutchen will move into the No. 3 spot Tuesday against the Rays.

McCutchen caught fire out of the No. 6 spot, batting .380 with eight homers and a 1.161 OPS over 28 games. Pirates manager Clint Hurdle has resisted switching things up until now, but he's finally ready for a change. Fantasy owners won't complain.
Jun 27 - 2:53 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

His rise from the ashes continues, as he's now turned in multi-hit games in 10 of 21 games this month. That's good for a .387 average, with six homers, 20 RBI and 19 runs scored in June. In total, he's hitting .269/.351/.485. Reports of his death appear to have been greatly exaggerated.
Jun 24 - 11:50 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal writes that the odds of the Pirates trading Andrew McCutchen before next month's deadline are "good."

The Pirates shopped McCutchen heavily last winter and they seem likely to do so again even if they climb back into the playoff hunt. While the former MVP got off to a painfully slow start this season, he's been one of the hottest hitters in baseball over the last month with a .396/.486/.736 line and eight homers across his last 26 games. The Pirates holds an affordable $14.5 million club option on McCutchen for 2018. 'Cutch will turn 31 in October.

Jun 20 - 11:56 PM
