Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen continues to struggle with 0-for-4 night
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/5/15) Pirates centerfielder Andrew McCutchen went 0 for 4 on Tuesday to drop his batting average to .185 through 92 at-bats.|
McCutchen, the 2013 National League MVP, said after Tuesday's loss to the Reds that he doesn't need time off but avoided answering if he was injured.
“Right now I’m not doing what I should be doing for the money I’m making," McCutchen said. "Right now, it's under mediocre right now ... It's bad and I know I'm better than that."
Pirates' Hurdle not concerned with McCutchen's knee 'right now'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle acknowledged Tuesday that center fielder Andrew McCutchen is picking his spots to run to first base on batted balls to limit the wear on his knee, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
"I don't think it's a concerning area right now," Hurdle said about McCutchen's knee.
"I think Andrew has already figured out some ways to do some different things," Hurdle said of McCutchen handling the discomfort, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I think the more we talk about his physical presence being diminished, I think we're (headed) in the wrong direction."
McCutchen has struggled in the early part of the season while dealing with the health issues. He's hit just .193/.291/.307 with two home runs and 13 RBI in 88 at-bats.
Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen still trying to find his groove in 2015
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/4/15) Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen continued to struggle in Sunday's extra-inning loss to the Cardinals. The former MVP went 1 for 7 on the afternoon, dropping his season batting average to a paltry .193. He has just seven hits over his last 38 at-bats.
The slow start through the first month of the season is rather uncharacteristic for McCutchen, who owns a lifetime .260 batting average in March/April. He has been bothered by a knee injury since spring training, though he has started all but two games for the Pirates this season.
Hurdle: Andrew McCutchen hasn't been involved in Pirates' offense
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/28/15) Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen has gotten off to a slow start to the season. Entering action on Tuesday, he was hitting .175 for the year and had an 0-for-16 stretch that ended on Sunday.
"We’ve had a handful of guys spark our club," manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Post Gazette. After listing five members of the lineup, Hurdle said. "All of them have been involved (in the offense). McCutchen really hasn't."
Hurdle isn't ready to push the panic button. He's confident McCutchen will heat up. "I believe it’s just one of those stretches," he said. "He’s going to produce. He’s going to hit. He’s going to drive in runs. He’s going to score runs."
Pirates' Andrew McCutchen hoping to break out of slump
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is in the midst of a 0-15 slump in the past five games he's played in. McCutchen's batting average is down to .175 while striking out five times in this span.
"That's baseball … it's a game of adjustments," McCutchen said, via MLB.com. "I'll get there, it's a matter of time," McCutchen said. "I'm not focused on the outcome, just on the feeling. And I'm feeling good, so the outcome will be there. Long as I feel good, I'll get good results."
McCutchen and the Pirates take on the Diamondbacks Sunday at 4:10 p.m.
|2014 summary: Andrew McCutchen may not have been able to repeat as NL MVP in 2014, but he actually had a better season overall, hitting four more home runs than in 2013 and leading the majors with a .410 on-base percentage. He's the only player in baseball to hit over .300 with an OPS over .900 each of the last three seasons -- and he's a base-stealer |
Playing time status: McCutchen had a curious stretch late in the year when pitchers kept hitting him in the ribs, with varying degrees of intention. But he missed only a two-week stretch in August because of a fracture in that area and was as good as ever after he returned for the Pirates, batting .324 with eight homers in 136 at-bats. Otherwise, he's been as healthy as it gets, playing 150-plus games in four straight seasons prior to last year.
2015 outlook: Because of Mike Trout's otherworldly ability, McCutchen probably doesn't get the admiration he should in Fantasy. But he's as consistently studly as any player, filling out all five categories for Rotisserie owners, and is a candidate to go No. 2 overall with questions surfacing about Miguel Cabrera's durability.
