McCutchen’s 2015 season wasn’t too far off from what he did in his MVP season in 2014. However, he did have fewer extra-base hits, hit below .300 for the first time in three seasons and the stolen bas...

McCutchen called for Tuesday's official scorer to be fired after he was charged with an error on a line drive to center field. “He smoked it. It was a knuckleball,” McCutchen told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I did what I could to try to catch it. Whoever scored that an error should be fired. That's unbelievable. I'd like him to try to catch that one.”

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

A rib avulsion fracture forced McCutchen to the disabled list for the first time in his six big-league seasons, but he still suited up for 146 games in 2014. The 28-year-old batted .314/.410/.542 with 25 homers and 18 steals in 648 plate appearances, making his third straight appearance as an NL MVP finalist (he won in 2013). Opponents continue to pitch McCutchen carefully; his zone percentage (pitches thrown inside the strike zone) dropped for the sixth consecutive campaign to a career-low 42.2%, but the center fielder still found a way to put up big numbers. He led the NL with a .952 OPS and is primed for yet another big season in 2015.

2014

McCutchen enters his age 27 season with a shiny new NL MVP Award under his belt. His league-leading 8.2 WAR in 2013 included 21 homers, 27 steals, 97 runs scored and a .911 OPS. He saw action in 157 games, making it four straight years McCutchen's played in at least 154 contests. Cutch wrecked left-handed pitching to the tune of a .388 batting average and 1.130 OPS, which was actually worse than his 2012 numbers (.392 BA and 1.141 OPS). After tailing off the past couple seasons, the Pittsburgh center fielder avoided a late-season collapse at the plate. McCutchen is in the prime of his career and could easily contend for a second straight MVP in 2014.

2013

McCutchen nearly won Pittsburgh's first MVP award since 1992, when Barry Bonds turned the trick. Cutch finished third in NL MVP voting, compiling a slash line of .327/.400/.553 with 31 homers and 20 stolen bases in 593 at-bats. His season could be broken into three speeds; slow, Mach 5 and idling. He didn't homer until the 26th game, but then lit up major league pitching to the tune of a .393/.452/.700 slash line in his next 81 contests. From August 9 to season's end, however, McCutchen saw his MVP hopes dashed with a .240/.341/.408 mark. It's hard to fault him for expanding his strike zone as opponents intentionally walked him 13 times and right-handers consistently fed him breaking pitches low-and-outside off the plate. Southpaws had no such answer for him -- McCutchen shredded lefties to the tune of a .392 batting average (51-for-130) and 1.141 OPS. On the basepaths, his struggles continued -- he was thrown out 12 times in 32 stolen base attempts and picked off six times as well. He's not the biggest guy around at 5-foot-10, 185 pounds and the Pirates would do well to give him more days off in the early season. Still, he's just 26 years old and trending in the right direction.

2012

McCutchen went big in 2011, setting career-highs in homers (23) and RBI (89). Unfortunately, the strikeouts increased from 89 to 126 as he added power to his repertoire. He finished with a .259 batting average after a second-half slump saw him compile a .227/.336/.416 line in 185 at-bats the last two months of the season. He stole 23 bases in 33 attempts based on sheer speed but lacks the base-stealing instincts to double those numbers. It's pretty safe to pencil in another 20/20 campaign for McCutchen in 2012. At 25, he's still working on different aspects of the game and if he puts it all together, look out, because Cutch hasn't yet peaked.

2011

When it comes to fantasy prowess, McCutchen represents the best Pittsburgh has to offer. In his first full season at the big league level, McCutchen put up a composite line of .286/.365/.449 with 16 homers and 56 RBI. He also finished 12th in the NL with 94 runs scored and fifth with 33 stolen bases (in 43 tries). The 24-year-old center fielder shows a decent eye at the plate (70:87 BB:K ratio), but tries to pull everything during slumps. His BABIP of .311 was strangely low, given his fantastic speed. There was talk that he played through a knee injury for much of the season, meaning that a healthy McCutchen might even do better in 2011.

2010

McCutchen made a statement with his rookie season in 2009, putting up marks of .286/.365/.471 while hitting 12 homers with 22 steals in 108 games. He showed a flair for the dramatic with a three-homer game and a walk-off dinger, becoming the heart and soul of the team despite not coming up from Triple-A until June 4. The Pirates will eventually move him down from first to third in the order, giving him an opportunity for more RBI. There's always a chance for a second-year letdown, but McCutchen is the real deal and is one of the Bucs' best prospects since Barry Bonds. The combination of McCutchen and Pedro Alvarez figures to get its first look at some point in 2010. At 22, McCutchen's keeper value may even be higher than what fantasy owners can expect in the coming season.

2009

McCutchen seems older than 22 if only because he's been touted as a star since being drafted in 2005. One of the youngest players at Triple-A last season, McCutchen hit an uninspired .283 with nine home runs and 50 RBI in 512 at-bats. To his credit, he did attempt a career-high 53 stolen bases, successfully nabbing 34, and improved his BB:K ratio from 48:94 to 68:87. Pittsburgh has handled McCutchen with kid gloves, keeping him away from winter ball in the offseason to give him some additional rest. At some point, the organization needs to find out what it has in him, especially with Nate McLouth as the team's only other entrenched outfielder. Expect to see McCutchen in the majors after the arbitration clock passes another year in 2009.

2008

McCutchen got his first taste of cold-weather baseball in 2007, and the results were not pretty. Playing in the Pennsylvanian mountains of Altoona, the outfielder struggled for the first time in his professional career. McCutchen, Pittsburgh's No. 1 pick in 2005, batted .214 the first two months of the season. He warmed up after that, however, finishing with a .258 Double-A batting average before hitting .313 in 67 Triple-A at-bats. Still just 21, McCutchen figures to start the 2008 campaign with Triple-A Indianapolis. If he does make the majors this summer, his biggest fantasy impact figures to be on the basepaths, where he stole 21 bases last year. Eventually he'll also hit for power, but he went deep just 11 times in 2007, including an inside-the-park job.

2007

McCutchen is the most highly touted prospect in the Pirates organization. He has demonstrated both power and speed in the low minors since being selected with Pittsburgh's No. 1 pick in 2005. Playing primarily for High-A Hickory, McCutchen batted .291 with 14 homers, 62 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 114 games. As a reward, the speedy center fielder was promoted to Double-A Altoona where he hit .308 with three dingers and 12 RBI in 78 at-bats. Generously listed as 5-foot-11, 170, McCutchen will likely start 2007 with Altoona. Should he continue to produce at the higher levels of minor-league play, it would not be surprising to see McCutchen called up mid-season. More likely he'll make his major-league debut in September, but stranger things have happened.

2006

McCutchen, 19, got off to a great minor league start last summer after the Pirates chose him with their No. 1 pick in June. Compared with the likes of Marquis Grissom, McCutchen hit a combined .310 (65-for-210) between Rookie ball and A-ball. The wiry-framed outfielder, who hit a pair of homers and stole 17 bases last year, will likely hone his game for Low-A Hickory in 2006. It wouldn't be surprising to see him end up at Double-A level with another strong season, however.
