Andrew McCutchen launched a solo home run in Tuesday's All-Star Game loss to the American League.

McCutchen took Chris Archer wait out to left field to lead off the sixth inning, as the ball hit the facade in the upper deck. It cut the AL's lead to 3-2 at the time, but the National League was then outscored 3-1 the rest of the way. Jhonny Peralta was the only hitter on the Senior Circuit to reach base twice, as he had an RBI single and drew a walk.

It was McCutchen's only hit of the night though he made his presence felt by drawing three walks. The 28-year-old has come on strong after getting off to a slow start, hitting .333 with 43 RBI since May 1. He'll head to his fifth consecutive All-Star Game Tuesday in Cincinnati. With the victory, the Pirates are now only three and a half games behind St. Louis for first place in the NL Central.

Now a starting outfielder for the 2015 NL All-Star squad, McCutchen is hitting .299/.395/.497 with 10 home runs, 51 RBI, and 45 runs scored.

Andrew McCutchen went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Thursday afternoon's win over the Tigers.

McCutchen hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning and an RBI double in the ninth. The two runs driven in gave him 47 for the season. After a slow start to the season, the numbers are more or less where you would expect them to be, as the star outfielder is now hitting .295/.386/.482 with nine homers and those 47 RBI. There's still a little room for improvement in the slugging department, but the rest of his body of work looks shiny enough.
Jul 2 - 5:03 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-5 with three walks and an RBI in Tuesday's 14-inning win against the Tigers.

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

'Cutch had to ext Saturday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left elbow. X-Rays came back negative, though, and he's ready to go.
Jun 28 - 11:41 AM

X-rays on Andrew McCutchen's left elbow came back negative.

Pirates fans can breathe a huge sigh of relief. McCutchen is day-to-day. Meanwhile, Saturday's game just got a little more interesting. Both dugouts were warned after Charlie Morton plunked Andrelton Simmons. It's unclear if Morton was retaliating for McCutchen's hit-by-pitch earlier in the game.
Jun 27 - 5:24 PM

Andrew McCutchen left Saturday's game against the Braves after taking a pitch off his left elbow.

He couldn't get out of the way of Julio Teheran's 91 mph fastball in the first inning. Jung Ho Kang pinch-ran for McCutchen with Starling Marte moving to center field. McCutchen has hit.333 with 31 RBI since May 1. If he faces an extended absence, it would be a huge loss for fantasy owners.
Jun 27 - 5:01 PM

Andrew McCutchen's two-run home run capped a seven-run fourth inning Tuesday, and the Pirates held on for a 7-6 win over the Reds.

McCutchen took Reds reliever Pedro Villarreal deep to put an exclamation point on the seven-run frame. He also doubled in the game, finishing 2-for-3 with a walk. He's now got nine homers, 44 RBI and 37 runs scored. The "What's wrong with Andrew McCutchen?" questions have ceased as he's come around at the dish, owning a .292/.375/.488 line through Tuesday.
Jun 23 - 10:52 PM

Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, notching his third consecutive multi-hit game, as the Pirates took down the White Sox on Wednesday.

McCutchen has hit in five games consecutively and in 12 of 14 June games as his surge continues. His RBI single staked the Pirates to an early 1-0 lead and proved important as the game went on. McCutchen is batting a terrific .296/.379/.485 with eight home runs and 42 RBI.
Jun 17 - 10:45 PM

Andrew McCutchen (knee) is back in Tuesday's lineup against the Brewers.

McCutchen didn't play Monday after aggravating his left knee during Sunday's game, but he's right back in there Sunday. He has turned things around dramatically after a very slow start, so the Pirates and fantasy owners will have to hope it doesn't linger.
