Per Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Phillies are getting McCutchen's eyes checked after he had trouble tracking line drives in recent games. It's possible that could explain his poor start to the season at the plate, as he's hitting just .179/.307/.286, though his 16.0 percent walk rate suggests he's tracking pitches well. It's unclear whether any potential eye issue is related to him sitting Monday or if he's simply getting a day off. Whatever the reason, Matt Joyce will be the left fielder in his absence.

McCutchen remains on the bench Tuesday against St. Louis, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McCutchen doesn't appear to be dealing with any injury, so it's possible he's slipping into the short side of a platoon in left field with Brad Miller, who's starting there again Tuesday.

The breakdown of playing time going forward may not become clear for a few more games.
McCutchen will sit Monday against the Cardinals.
The Phillies are calling this just a routine day off for McCutchen, per Matt Gelb of The Athletic, but it would hardly be a surprise if he finds himself on the bench more often going forward. His 17.5 percent walk rate remains excellent, but that's just about all that's going well for him at the moment, as he's hitting just .154 and slugging .231. The left-handed Brad Miller, who starts in his place Monday, would make for an obvious platoon partner, but the Phillies aren't expected to go in that direction quite yet.
McCutchen will not start Tuesday's game against the Giants.

McCutchen is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.

The strong showing means the veteran outfielder has now gone 6-for-18 with three extra-base hits through seven Grapefruit League games. Entering the season healthy is what's most important for the former MVP, who posted a career-low 103 wRC+ last season in his first year back from a torn ACL. Any boost he gets from a healthy offseason could be offset by the effects of aging for the 34-year-old, though he should still be a respectable cross-category contributor this season unless age hits particularly hard.
