Andrew McCutchen News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen is not in the lineup for the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Marlins. Utilityman Brad Miller will fill in for McCutchen in left field and bat second versus Miami Starter Sandy Alcantara. McCutchen should be back in his usual cleanup slot for the nightcap so fantasy managers can leave him in starting lineups. The veteran outfielder got off to a rough start to the season, but proved he still has life in his bat during the month of June when he posted a 1.027 OPS. On the season McCutchen is batting .228 but has a strong .346 on-base percentage thanks to elite plate discipline metrics. He's a decent outfield option in traditional fantasy leagues, but McCutchen is a must-start player in OBP leagues.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen blasted his second grand slam in as many weeks to give the Phillies an early lead at Wrigley Field. The first three Phillies of the game reached base to set up a classic "clean-up" scenario for the Phillies four-hole hitter and McCutchen cleared the bases with a home run off of former teammate Jake Arrieta. McCutchen got off to a rough start this season, but he's batting a healthy .299 since June 1 with a 167 wRC+. Fantasy managers in need of outfield help can turn to McCutchen with two more good matchups in Chicago on the docket.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen (oblique) is back in the starting lineup on Monday against the Chicago Cubs after exiting the game early on Sunday with tightness in his oblique. McCutchen is back in left field and is hitting cleanup against Cubs right-hander Zach Davies. It's a good time for him to return, too, since he's hitting .364 with a homer and four RBI in 11 career at-bats against Davies. The veteran outfielder hasn't made a ton of contact this year, though, and is hitting just .227/.350/.422, but he does have a useful 13 home runs, 41 RBI and six stolen bases in 76 games for the Phillies. The soft-tossing Davies doesn't miss a ton of bats himself, so McCutchen is a fine daily play to begin the week.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen continues to be Mr. Consistent, even as he enters his mid-30s. An ACL injury limited him to 59 games in 2019, the fewest games played in his career and also the first time in 10 years that he failed to play at least 146 games in a season. Last year, McCutchen bounced back to his healthy, reliable self by playing in 57 games and hitting 10 homers -- equating to 27 in a full season -- with four steals chipped in. McCutchen's batting average last year (.253) was near identical to his previous two years -- .255 in 2018 and .256 in 2019 -- establishing a solid base to project from. The days of double-digit stolen bases are likely gone, but his four steals in the shortened 2020 season does give some reason to hope that he could approach double-digit thefts if he stays healthy all year. All but one of McCutchen's starts last year came as the Phillies leadoff hitter, and even though last year's walk rate (9.1%) was McCutchen's lowest in the majors, he still put up a solid .324 OBP. He'll offer up useful run-scoring potential if he's the leadoff hitter again in 2021. McCutchen benefited from the universal designated hitter in 2020 (16 games as DH), so he may not be an everyday player as a 34-year-old if MLB doesn't bring the universal DH back. Even still, McCutchen's consistent production offers value at his current ADP of 202 as the 54th outfielder taken in drafts, on average.
