"You've got to have the confidence in yourself that regardless of what they're throwing up there, you're capable of being able to have some good at-bats and be able to be on the successful side of it," McCutchen said to MLB.com.

This was the second game in a row that McCutchen went yard and marked the third time in the past four games he's done so. After a horrible start in April, McCutchen is hitting .321 since May 1.

Hurdle: Swing is main issue for Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies. More than likely, this is just a day off for the veteran. 

After a cold start in April, McCutchen has seen his batting average rise as he's recorded hits in seven of his last eight games. 

Outfielder Gregory Polanco is back in the lineup and hitting first. First baseman Pedro Alvarez is hitting fifth. Third baseman Jung Ho Kang is hitting sixth and catcher Chris Stewart is batting ninth. 


Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen hot in May after cold April


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/13/2015) Pirates slugger Andrew McCutchen had claimed throughout the first month of the season that his problems at the plate were the result of a faulty swing rather than a faulty left knee.

Perhaps he is proving himself right.

McCutchen has finally broken out with 10 hits in his last 26 at-bats, including a two-home homer Tuesday night against Philadelphia. It marked his first home run to center this season.

"I said that when things aren't going well that it has nothing to do with my knee," McCutchen told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "It just had to do with the fact that I wasn't playing like I should be playing. It was just a matter of time. When things get going, they're going to get going."

McCutchen hit .194 in April for only the  second sub-.200 month in his career. His average has crawled up from .185 to .229 since May 5.

Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen collects three hits Thursday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen showed signs of coming out of his slump when he produced three hits during Thursday's 7-2 win over the Reds.

McCutchen went 3 for 4 during the game and he drove in one run. He raised his batting average from .188 to .210. McCutchen has hit safely in seven of his last eight games. However, he has just two extra-base hits during that span.

"Once we start keying on the good things, we start rolling, get the ball rolling here, it will be good regardless of if it's in our division or if it's out of our division," he said, per MLB.com. "As long as we get going, ain't going to be anyone really stopping us."


Pirates' McCutchen: 'I'm not doing what I should be doing for the money'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Pirates manager Clint Hurdle acknowledged that Andrew McCutchen's sore left knee has impacted his approach on running to first base, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

McCutchen, who is making $10 million this season, voiced his frustration after he was held without a hit in four at-bats during Tuesday's loss to Cincinnati.

"I'm sick and tired of going 0-for-freaking-4. I know I'm better than that," McCutchen said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "I'm getting paid what I'm getting paid because of the way I should be playing. Right now I'm not doing what I should be doing for the money I'm making. ... It's under mediocre right now. It's bad."

McCutchen has been dealing with a sore knee since spring training, and at one point in early April revealed that he's only at "80 percent." He began the year hitting .238 (10 for 42) with two doubles, two homers and 10 RBI over his first 12 games. However, over his last 13 games, the former MVP has hit only .140 (7 for 50) with a triple and three RBI.

After Tuesday's game, he reassured that injury is not the main factor for his issues at the plate.

"I feel good, I feel strong when I'm up there. I feel fine when I'm hitting," McCutchen said. "I can't sit here and say my knee is the reason. I don't believe so. I just believe I’m a little off. ... Once it's going, it ain't gonna stop. While I'm down, get me while I'm down."


Pirates CF Andrew McCutchen continues to struggle with 0-for-4 night


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) 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
(5/5/2015) 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
(5/4/2015) 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
(4/28/2015) 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
(4/26/2015) 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.

Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen rips second home run


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) 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."

Pirates' Andrew McCutchen (knee) not in Saturday's lineup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen was held out of the starting lineup Saturday night against Milwaukee.

McCutchen was removed from Friday's contest late in the ninth inning after attempting to play through left knee soreness, an issue he has been experiencing since spring training. He said he felt something in his knee during his final at-bat, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. McCutchen did not undergo an MRI, but said that his knee is "structurally fine" and will not need a stint on the disabled list, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

McCutchen is hitting .125 (2 for 16) with a home run and two RBI through four games. He will be available to pinch-hit in case of an emergency.

"It is frustrating," McCutchen said of the recurrence. "I've always been the type of player who comes in in tip-top shape, 100 percent ready to go. And it's been a little different for me this year, battling a few things. (In Spring Training) it was more than just the knee, the lower body in general. Now (the knee) seems a little more acute."

The Pirates are underdogs (+105) in Milwaukee, per VegasInsider.com.
