McCutchen collected three singles Monday, finishing 3-for-4 against Milwaukee. Over his last 13 games, McCutchen is slashing .321/.357/.547 in 56 plate appearances. The center fielder has seven hits in 21 at-bats against Tuesday starter Chase Anderson, including a homer Sept. 13. Pittsburgh's offense continues to struggle but McCutchen has regained his stroke after a disappointing August.
McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Reds. McCutchen blasted his 26th homer of the season in the ninth inning to pull the Pirates within a single run in a losing effort. He's left the yard in three of his last five games, and could be starting a hot streak that could be extremely helpful to fantasy owners during the most important part of the season.
McCutchen went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored during Wednesday's loss to Milwaukee. This was McCutchen's 25th long fly of the season, and he's taking a run at posting his best fantasy campaign since 2014 with an extra-base hit in each of his past four games. It's been another strong cross-category showing and McCutchen appears in line to finish the year strong.
McCutchen went 1-for-4 with a double Tuesday in Milwaukee. His double, which produced an 109-mph exit velocity, gives the center fielder extra-base hits in three straight games. McCutchen is far removed from his summer hot stretch (he entered Tuesday hitting .194 since Aug. 17), but he does have hits in seven of eight contests. McCutchen has gone .316 in 19 career at-bats against Wednesday starter Chase Anderson.
McCutchen is out of the lineup Friday against the Cardinals. McCutchen has started 12 consecutive games, but will receive the night off Friday. Over said games he hit .208/.255/.229 and collected just one extra-base hit. Starling Marte will move over to center field Friday while Jordan Luplow heads out to left.
