Pirates | Andrew McCutchen has sore knee

Tue, 05 May 2015 18:38:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is dealing with a sore left knee, although manager Clint Hurdle said Tuesday, May 5, that it is not "a concerning area right now." McCutchen is hitting just .193 and he has yet to steal a base this season.

Fantasy Tip: Hurdle might simply be protecting his player and playing possum with the opposition, as admitting an injury could help in their defensive plan against Cutch. FantasyScore players have certainly not been getting a good return on their $5,100 (or 10.2% of cap) investment so far this season.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen not fully healthy

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 11:31:36 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) said he was "80%" healthy earlier in the month, and he's enduring one of the worst slumps to start a season in his career. His walk and strikeout totals are normal, but his power has been lacking. McCutchen missed two weeks in spring with a knee issue, but manager Clint Hurdle doesn't think that's the reason for McCutchen's slow start.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) is hitting only .179 (12-for-67) with two home runs, 11 RBI and no stolen bases on one attempt. The lack of power and aggressiveness on the base paths are the most concerning to his owners, especially if his knee ailment is playing a part. He's not worth paying up for right now at FantasyScore until we see some signs of life. You might want to consider benching him in standard leagues for the time being, as well.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen in career-worst slump

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 05:43:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen's 0-for-4 showing Saturday, April 25, extended his hitless streak to 16 at-bats. He has now gone five consecutive games without a hit, including a pinch-hitting appearance. Both are career worsts.

Fantasy Tip: The beauty of daily contests is being fully capable of avoiding slumps, and while McCutchen's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) seasonal owners shouldn't worry about his slow start, FantasyScore players can avoid the headache and target other top-end hitters. McCutchen will turn things around, and likely in short order, so don't make any hasty decisions in yearly leagues.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen back Friday

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 15:23:23 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is back in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Josh Collmenter Friday, April 24, and he's starting in center field and hitting in his customary No. 3 spot.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) is playing at less than 100% health with an achy knee, and it's likely contributed to his slow start (.200-2-10) in 2015. Most FantasyScore owners might be avoiding Cutch because of his April slump, but facing Collmenter could be the perfect elixir to get things rolling, especially at hitter-friendly Chase Field.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen has achy knee

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:22:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) was rested Thursday, April 23, as he deals with an achy left knee. The team will continue to monitor him after he admitted he's not 100%. However, the pain in his knee has been manageable.

Fantasy Tip: That might help explain McCutchen's ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) slow start this year (.204-2-10). At FantasyScore, you'll probably want to shy away from him until he shows signs of life and better health. Corey Hart ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) and Andrew Lambo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may see more playing time if McCutchen is rested more often or needs to miss significant time.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen sitting

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 08:40:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen is not in the lineup Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Just a day of rest in a day game following a night game. Gregory Polanco ($3,700 salary; 7.4% of cap) is taking his place in center field, while Andrew Lambo ($1,600; 3.2%) is in right field. Polanco is a useful FantasyScore play, but feel free to ignore Lambo.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen in lineup Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 07:11:24 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is in the lineup Monday, April 13, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that Cutch is back in there again after missing Saturday's game with a knee issue. He went deep Sunday, and at $6,200 (12.4% of your cap), he's an elite OF option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen returns to lineup

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 09:05:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is in the starting lineup for the game against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, April 12.

Fantasy Tip: McCutchen ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) returns after missing the last game because of a knee injury. McCutchen is one of the top options in fantasy baseball and should be a starting option on FantasyScore as long as he is healthy.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen out Saturday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 12:15:51 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) is not in the starting lineup against the Milwaukee Brewers Saturday, April 11, because of left knee pain. OF Starling Marte will play center field and bat cleanup, with OF Andrew Lambo playing left field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain how much time McCutchen ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) will miss or even if he'll be available to pinch-hit later in the game, so keep checking back for updates. Marte ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is a viable option for FantasyScore owners looking for a low-cost, high-potential outfielder but Lambo ($1,600) isn't worthy of consideration in daily leagues.

Pirates | Andrew McCutchen leaves early Friday

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 06:17:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen (knee) removed himself from the game in the ninth inning Friday, April 10, because of knee discomfort, according to manager Clint Hurdle. "He took himself out after he ran down the line after the at-bat," Hurdle said. "He felt a little something."

Fantasy Tip: Hurdle added the injury wasn't related to a seventh-inning attempted diving catch by McCutchen, and Hurdle didn't not respond to the question of whether the knee discomfort was related to the lower-body discomfort which kept McCutchen out during spring training. For the time being, consider McCutchen a slightly more risky daily play and continue to check back for updates on his status.
