Andrew McCutchen News
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen (Achilles) will be in a walking boot for six weeks, which basically means his 2023 season has come to an end. The Pirates placed McCutchen on the 10-day injured list on Wednesday with a partial tear of his left Achilles. The 36-year-old veteran is set to hit free agency this offseason after posting a .256/.378/.397 slash line with 12 home runs, 19 doubles, 43 RBI, 11 stolen bases and 55 runs scored in 112 games and 473 plate appearances in his return to Pittsburgh in 2023. McCutchen's career is near its end, but he's said he would like to return for one more season. Wherever he lands, he's likely to continue serving as more of a full-time designated hitter.
Pittsburgh Pirates DH Andrew McCutchen left his team's game against the Milwaukee Brewers with tightness in his left Achilles' tendon, according to the team. McCutchen had a big game before leaving, going 2-for-3 with two doubles, a run, and an RBI. He was lifted for pinch-hitter Joshua Palacios late in the game, although the Pirates called the move precautionary. McCutchen has a good chance of being back in action in the next day or two. Stay tuned.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen will take the day off on Thursday against the visiting Chicago Cubs. Bryan Reynolds will serve as the designated hitter and will bat second, with Joshua Palacios, Ji Hwan Bae and Connor Joe starting for Pittsburgh across the outfield. The 36-year-old McCutchen has served as the team's primary designated hitter for most of the year, and he's having a fine season in his return to the team in which he spent the first nine years of his career. In the month of August, McCutchen is hitting .262 (17-for-65) with two home runs, five doubles, 10 RBI and seven runs scored in 17 starts. He should be back in Friday's lineup in the second game of the series against Chicago.
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.
