Pirates | Andrew McCutchen striking out more

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:03:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is striking out 23.3% of the time this season, which is nearly six points higher than his career average. "I'm a guy that has a good feel for the zone, and when I get good pitches to hit, normally I hit them. But more times than not lately, I've been getting them and I've been missing them. I'm getting to two strikes more and having to battle. When I'm on and I'm feeling good, I get a pitch to hit, I hit it," McCutchen said.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen has a .289 batting average with four home runs and 12 RBI so far this season but has struck out 25 times in each of the first two months. McCutchen should still be a starting option in all fantasy leagues despite his struggles.

Fantasy Tip: Freese is 4-for-12 at the plate over the past week and is batting .349 at home this season, so he should be viewed as a potential value play at the hot corner in daily fantasy contests. Rodriguez is another source of productive cap relief, with four homers and 14 RBI in just 54 at-bats.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen continues slump

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 05:48:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen went 0-for-3 during the Pirates 7-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen is 10-for-58 through his past 15 games with an underwhelming eight runs, two home runs, four RBI, one stolen base and .172/.294/.328 slash line. The superstar will breakout of his funk, but at 29, it isn't out of the question to suggest his prime offensive years are behind him. Still, it is worth checking for a potential buy-low opportunity.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen hits first homer

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 19:27:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen hit his first home run of the season, going 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk in a 5-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a slow start to the year for McCutchen, but just stick with him in season-long leagues. He should produce OF1 numbers when all is said and done, and it could be worth throwing out an offer for McCutchen in case another owner is panicking.
