2010 Fantasy Baseball Projections
Lightning injection after call-up, with pleasing walk rate to boot. Andrew McCutchen bulked up a little; power increase coming? Might mean sacrificing average, though clip skills are his best bet behind steals. Didn't show high-level flyball skills in minors; count on a modest growth in homers but an improvement in contact-related skills. Buccos stretched out his development, so he'll read pitches better in a full season. Mixed leaguers shouldn't be afraid to overspend on him in the middle rounds of drafts because of his top-50 potential; acquiring his steals will give you an advantage at a cheaper price than other elite thieves.
