Andrew McCutchen News
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and a walk in a loss to the Braves on Thursday. McCutchen has accumulated good numbers as he's got 26 homers, 77 runs scored, and 78 RBI. Those numbers have largely been the product of 'Cutch staying healthy, however, as he's played in 142 games. His rate stats paint a different picture. McCutchen is batting just .221 with a .774 OPS as he's been a fringe-starter at best in fantasy. He's got tough matchups lined up as the Phillies will face Marlins' ace Sandy Alcantara on Friday as the last series of the year is in cavernous loanDepot Park. McCutchen isn't a recommended fantasy start for that series.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen remained ice-cold by going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a loss to the Mets on Sunday Night Baseball. McCutchen has struggled mightily as he has just three hits in his previous 22 at-bats and is batting just .196 through 16 games in September. Most of McCutchen's troubles can be blamed on a career-worst 23% strikeout rate, but he's also been the victim of a .240 BABIP which is well below his career average. McCutchen is not a viable starter in mixed leagues at the moment.
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in a win over the Rockies on Saturday. McCutchen needed a game like this as he had been struggling mightily for an extended stretch. After posting an anemic .155 batting average in August, 'Cutch had 10 strikeouts through 10 games in September while seeing his walk rate dip under 10% for the first time this season. McCutchen has fantasy value when he's going well, but for now, it's hard to trust the veteran in starting lineups.
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.
