The Pittsburgh Pirates are expected to place OF Andrew McCutchen (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list because of an oblique injury, and he could be out at least three to four weeks, according to a source.
Fantasy Tip: Starling Marte likely will take over in center field when he comes off the seven-day disabled list. Travis Snider likely will see most of the playing time while McCutchen is out but could also be part of a platoon with a right-handed hitter. Jose Tabata, Michael Martinez, Jayson Nix and Matt Hague are options to see playing time as part of a platoon but likely would only be options in NL-only leagues. Owners in deeper mixed leagues should look to add Snider if they have the chance.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have benched 3B Pedro Alvarez as the starter, instead preferring to use SS Jayson Nix and OF Josh Harrison at the position. Alvarez will get a chance to learn another position in the offseason.
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is a streaky source of power categories. He's a must-hold in NL-only leagues and a worthwhile speculative add in mixed leagues if he's dropped.
