Pirates lineup sans McCutchen against Cubs on Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen is set to sit Thursday against the Cubs, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review has reported. The day off will allow him to rest his ailing left knee, which has been getting better.
McCutchen is hitless in his last two games and is just 6-for-28 since April 13 without a home run. His slash line on the year is an uncharacteristic .204/.322/.367.
Pirates' Andrew McCutchen has most hits vs. Cubs since 2013
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) With two hits Monday, including a double, Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen leads all MLB players with 49 hits against the Cubs since the start of 2013, per MLB.com.
He will be looking to add to that total Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as the Pirates finish out a four-game series with Chicago. The Cubs will throw Travis Wood on Tuesday, Jason Hammel on Wednesday and Kyle Hendricks on Thursday.
McCutchen has never faced Hendricks in his career, but he is batting .259 (7 for 27) with one double, two home runs, seven RBI, seven walks and seven strikeouts against Wood and is batting .300 (6 for 20) with one double, two home runs, three RBI, one walk and four strikeouts against Hammel.
In 95 career games vs. Chicago, McCutchen is batting .333 with three triples, 23 doubles, 13 home runs and 51 RBI.
Pirates' Hurdle: Andrew McCutchen (knee) starting to move better
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said Monday star center fielder Andrew McCutchen "has moved better the last couple of games," per MLB.com.
McCutchen has been playing through left knee soreness. However, the injury has only cost him to miss one game and he has played in eight straight games, including Monday's contest against the Cubs.
The four-time All-Star is batting .211 (8 for 38) with one double, two home runs and nine RBI in 11 games.
With Neil Walker off, Pirates move Andrew McCutchen to cleanup spot
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) With second baseman Neil Walker receiving the night off, the Pirates moved center fielder Andrew McCutchen to the cleanup spot Friday against Milwaukee.
McCutchen has started all eight of his games at the No. 3 hole, with Walker at the cleanup spot. McCutchen is hitting .207 (6 for 29) with two homers and seven RBI to start the season. He is a
Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen rips second home run
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen returned to the lineup Sunday against the Brewers, going 2 for 5 with a home run and four RBI in Pittsburgh's 10-2 win.
McCutchen, who pushed his average to .190 on the year, ripped the first pitch he saw from Kyle Lohse in the sixth inning to right for his second homer of the year, driving in Gregory Polanco and Jordy Mercer. He then singled to drive in his fourth RBI and sixth of the seeason.
McCutchen thinks the issue with his knee, which kept him out of the lineup Saturday, is going to be there the rest of the year, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"It's going to be an everyday occurrence for me for who knows how long, but I can battle through it," McCutchen said. "Think about your knee being sore... You can pretty much pinpoint what could bother it."
|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.
