Player Outlook
Andrew McCutchen looked rejuvenated early on in his return to Pittsburgh, posting an .823 OPS with eight homers and six steals through the end of May. An elbow injury sent him to the injured list and McCutchen's season ultimately ended in early September due to a partial tear of his left Achilles' tendon. The 37-year-old was in a walking boot for six weeks but the Pirates were happy enough with the reunion and confident enough in his health to bring him back for 2024. A former NL MVP, McCutchen's last All-Star appearance came back in 2015, though the skills have held up OK around the injuries. His strikeout rate still has never exceeded 23 percent and he walked at a 15.9 percent clip last season, the second-highest mark of his career. Unfortunately for those playing fantasy baseball, McCutchen is now UT-only, having made just eight appearances in the outfield last season. He's very much relevant but tougher to roster at this stage of his career given the missed time and lack of positional eligibility.

    McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a walk Monday against the Nationals.

The Pirates' lineup is deeper than last season when McCutchen was a regular, but he'll likely get plenty of time to get his bat up to speed.

  • Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Ready for spring debut

    McCutchen (Achilles) will make his spring debut Tuesday against the Blue Jays, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

  • Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Re-signs with Pittsburgh

    Pittsburgh re-signed McCutchen (Achilles) to a one-year, $5 million contract Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

The 37-year-old will likely again serve as Pittsburgh's primary designated hitter in 2024, also possibly sprinkling in a bit of action in the corner outfield if his lower left leg cooperates. McCutchen is sitting on 299 career home runs as he enters his 16th major-league season.

  • Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Out for season with Achilles injury

    McCutchen was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a partial tear in his left Achilles, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. McCutchen will need to wear a walking boot for the next six weeks, so the injury effectively ends his season. It could also potentially spell the end of his Pirates career since he'll hit free agency this offseason, although 'Cutch has indicated a desire to come back for at least one more year. He's had a solid 2023 campaign, slashing .256/.378/.397 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases over 112 games. McCutchen has basically been a full-time designated hitter for the Pirates this season and the team now figures to rotate through multiple players in that spot in the final month.

  • Pirates' Andrew McCutchen: Spotted in walking boot

    McCutchen (Achilles) was seen wearing a walking boot Wednesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. McCutchen departed Monday's game versus the Brewers due to left Achilles tightness and didn't play Tuesday. He has downplayed the injury previously, but it would appear it's more serious than he let on. Also noteworthy is that Jared Triolo has a locker at PNC Park, so it's possible he's taking McCutchen's spot on the roster. At the very least, McCutchen will miss another start Wednesday.
