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.
