Pirates | Andrew McCutchen hits homer No. 9

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 20:06:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-3 with a home run and two RBI during the Pirates' 7-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: It was McCutchen's ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) first home run since Saturday, June 6, and just his second since Sunday, May 24. So he has slowed down in that regard since he hit five in 11 games in mid-May. While he remains a high-end fantasy option in all formats, his hefty price at FantasyScore means players should be a little picky about when they utilize him in their lineups, especially when he isn't in his finest form.
