Andrew Stefan McCutchen (born October 10, 1986), nicknamed "Cutch",[1] is an American professional baseball outfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, and New York Yankees.

The Pirates selected McCutchen in the first round (11th overall) of the 2005 MLB draft. He made his MLB debut in 2009, and was the National League Most Valuable Player in 2013, and has been a five-time Major League All Star (2011–15), a four-time Silver Slugger Award winner (2012–15), won a Gold Glove Award in 2012, and won the 2015 Roberto Clemente Award. He led the National League in hits (194) in 2012, and in on-base percentage (.410), OPS (.952), and extra base hits (69) in 2014.

Early years[edit]

McCutchen was born in Fort Meade, Florida, to Lorenzo McCutchen and Petrina Swan, who were high school teenagers at the time.[2] He has a sister, Loren. He lived with his mother while his father attended Carson–Newman University in Jefferson City, Tennessee, where Lorenzo played running back on the football team. Lorenzo gave up his dream of making the National Football League to be close to his son, and returned to Fort Meade in 1989. Petrina would not marry him unless he became a church minister, which he did. The two married on August 1, 1992.[1]

McCutchen was eligible to play varsity baseball as an eighth grader at Fort Meade High School. He batted .591 that year. His average his senior season was .709, as he hit 16 home runs and 42 runs batted in (RBIs). During McCutchen's varsity career, he batted .474.[3]

He also ran track and played football. McCutchen was part of a state title-winning 4 × 100 m relay his freshman year of high school.[4] He was one of the top football recruits in the state of Florida, with his high school position being wide receiver, but opted for a career in baseball. McCutchen was reportedly offered a full-ride scholarship to the University of Miami to play football.[5]

Professional career[edit]

Minor leagues[edit]

McCutchen, who had committed to the University of Florida, was drafted 11th overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the First Round of the 2005 MLB draft and signed with the Pirates for a $1.9 million signing bonus instead of going to Florida.[6][7] In 2005 he played for the Rookie GCL Pirates and the Class A- Williamsport Crosscutters, and hit a combined .310/.419(2nd in the Gulf Coast League)/.433 with 2 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 210 at bats, as he was 2nd in the league 29 walks, tied for 2nd with 36 runs, was 3rd with 3 triples, and was 5th with 13 stolen bases.[8][9][10]

Before the 2006 season Baseball America named him the #50 prospect in the minor leagues.[8] McCutchen played the majority of the season for the Class A Hickory Crawdads, for whom he started for the South Atlantic League's All-Star team in his first full season as a professional player and was a post-season SAL All Star.[11][8][12] He also played for the Class AA Altoona Curve, and batted a combined .294/.359/.450 with 17 home runs and 23 stolen bases in 531 at bats.[13] At the end of that year, the Pirates named him the organization's Minor League Player of the Year.[14]

Before the 2007 season Baseball America named McCutchen the #13 prospect in the minor leagues, and Baseball Prospectus named him the #15 prospect.[8] He played again for Altoona, as well as for the Class AAA Indianapolis Indians, and hit a combined 265/.329/.388 with 11 home runs and 21 stolen bases in 513 at bats.[8] In 2007 he also played for the Phoenix Desert Dogs, he was on the Arizona Fall League All-Prospect Team and named a Rising Star.[15]

Before the 2008 season Baseball America named him the #14 prospect in the minor leagues, and Baseball Prospectus named him the #24 prospect.[8] In 2008, McCutchen was a mid-season International League All Star, an All-Star Futures Game selection, and the Triple-A All Star Game Top Star.[15][11] He played the entire season with Indianapolis, and batted .283/.372 (10th in the International League)/.398 with 12 home runs, 68 walks (3rd in the league), 34 stolen bases (7th), and 145 hits (9th), in 512 at bats.[8]

Before the 2009 season Baseball America named McCutchen the #33 prospect in the minor leagues, and Baseball Prospectus named him the #25 prospect.[8] He again played for Indianapolis, but played only 49 games for them, as he batted .303/.361/.493 with 4 home runs and 17 stolen bases in 201 at bats.[8]

Pittsburgh Pirates[edit]

2009[edit]

On June 3, 2009, after the Pittsburgh Pirates traded starting center fielder Nate McLouth to the Atlanta Braves, McCutchen was called up to the major leagues for the first time. He made his debut the next day, playing center field and batting leadoff against the New York Mets. He singled in his first career at bat, off starter Mike Pelfrey. He ended the day with two singles, one RBI, three runs scored, and a stolen base in four at bats.[16] He recorded his first career four-hit game five days later, against McLouth and the Braves. Two of his hits were triples, making him the first Pirate with two triples in a game since Tike Redman accomplished the feat in 2003.[17]

On June 17, McCutchen hit his first career home run off of Francisco Liriano of the Minnesota Twins. On June 25, he had his first career walk-off hit, off Cleveland Indians closer Matt Herges. "He's an impressive looking young player. He really is", said Indians manager Eric Wedge.[18]

On August 1, against the Washington Nationals, McCutchen went 4-for-5, with three home runs and six RBIs. He hit a solo home run in the first inning to lead off the game against Nationals starter Craig Stammen, a two-run shot in the fourth inning off reliever Tyler Clippard, and then a three-run homer in the sixth off Logan Kensing. He fell a grand slam short of a (natural) home run cycle. He became the 10th Pirates player ever to hit three home runs in a single game, and the first one to do it during his rookie year.[19] Ten days later against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field, he stole a career-high three bases in a game off three different Rockies pitchers.[20] McCutchen hit his first walk-off home run on August 25, off Brad Lidge of the Philadelphia Phillies.

McCutchen finished his rookie season batting .286/.365/.471, with 9 triples (6th in the National League), an 81.48 stolen base percentage (6th), 12 home runs, 54 runs batted in, and 22 stolen bases in 108 games.[21] On defense, he had 10 assists (3rd among NL center fielders), and a 2.53 range factor/game (4th).[21]

He finished fourth in the voting for the National League Rookie of the Year Award, behind Chris Coghlan, J.A. Happ, and Tommy Hanson.[22] He was named the Baseball America Rookie of the Year for 2009.[23]

2010[edit]

McCutchen began the 2010 season as the Pirates' every day center fielder. "He's an All-Star. This year, probably", said Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox. "Hitting. Running. Defense. Throwing. He's got it all. He catches the ball like Andruw Jones did when he was 19. You can't hit a ball [past him] out there. He's got lightning in that bat too."[24]

McCutchen posted a career day against the Chicago Cubs on May 14, going 5-for-5 with five runs scored in a 10–7 Pirates win. Teammate Garrett Jones also recorded five hits, making McCutchen and Jones the first Pirate duo since Hall of Fame inductee Willie Stargell and Bob Robertson accomplished the feat in 1970. "I guess we were just kind of competing against each other", McCutchen said, laughing. "I don't know. I'd get a hit, he'd get a hit. He'd hit a homer, I'd hit a homer."[25] McCutchen finished the month of May with career-best numbers, hitting .327 with a .901 OPS, which drew comparisons with Tampa Bay Rays All-Star Carl Crawford.[26]

McCutchen was not named to the 2010 National League All Star Team. Pirates pitcher Evan Meek, who was named the Pirates representative, said that McCutchen was "very deserving" and should have gone as well.[27]

After hitting .226 in August, McCutchen batted .326, with 22 runs and 17 RBIs, in September. He also recorded 12 multi-hit games from September 3 – October 3. McCutchen said about the changes from August to September, "Honestly, I don't think I'm doing anything any different right now. You swing, and the ball finds a hole. That's it. That's the game of baseball."[28]

He finished his second major league season hitting .286/.365/.449 while adding 94 runs, 16 home runs, 56 RBIs, and 33 stolen bases (5th in the National League), with a 21.6 power-speed number (9th).[21] On defense, he had 8 assists (3rd of all NL center fielders) and 2 double plays from center field (5th).[21]

2011[edit]

McCutchen took the place of the injured Ryan Braun as a member of the National League All Star team at the 2011 Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Phoenix.[29] On August 30, 2011, McCutchen hit a ninth inning homer against the Houston Astros to become the eighth Pirates player to record at least 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in one season. He was the first Pirate to accomplish the feat since Nate McLouth in 2008.[30]

McCutchen finished the season batting .259/.364/.456 with team highs of 23 home runs, 23 stolen bases, 87 runs, and 89 RBIs. He also had a 23.0 power-speed number (4th in the National League) and 89 walks (5th).[21] On defense, he led all NL outfielders in putouts (414), double plays (5), and range factor/game (2.73).[21] He was nominated as the Pirates' representative for the Hank Aaron Award.[31]

2012[edit]

McCutchen in 2012

On March 5, 2012, McCutchen signed a six-year, $51.5 million contract extension with the Pirates, with a $14.75 million club option for 2018.[32] He was a 2012 NL All Star.[33] McCutchen was chosen to replace Giancarlo Stanton in the Home Run Derby due to injury.[34] He hit 4 home runs during the first round of the competition, and failed to reach the second round.

McCutchen was named NL Player of the Month for June, his first selection.[35] He won his first NL Player of the Week Award on July 8, and later won it a second consecutive week on July 15, becoming the first Pirate since Jason Bay in 2006 to do so.[35][36] During July he hit .446 with seven home runs and 15 RBIs and was named the NL Player of the Month for a second consecutive month.[21] He became the first Pirate since Bobby Bonilla during the 1988 season to earn the award twice in the same season.[37]

2013[edit]

In 2013 McCutchen was the athlete featured on the cover of the baseball video game MLB 13: The Show. He received 108,147 votes in a week of fan voting via Twitter and Facebook, while New York Yankees' pitcher CC Sabathia came in second with 89,054 votes.[39] Though athletes cannot appear twice on the cover, he appeared on the back cover of the 2014 edition of the game.[40]

On April 3, McCutchen stole his 100th career base. On September 3, 2013, facing Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo, he hit his 100th career home run.

McCutchen was named to the 2013 NL All Star Team, becoming an All Star for the third straight year as a reserve.

They were eliminated by the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS in game 5.

On June 15, 2014, he won the NL Player of the Week Award, and in June 2014, he won the NL Player of the Month Award.[21] On the 4th of July in 2014, against the in-state rival Philadelphia Phillies, McCutchen came close to hitting for the cycle by hitting 4-for-5 with two RBIs, barely missing a home run in the 8th inning when it hit the right field wall of PNC Park a few feet short of clearing it. On July 13, he again won the NL Player of the Week Award.[21] On September 10, McCutchen hit his first career inside-the-park homer against the Phillies.[42]

McCutchen was elected to the All Star Game for the fourth time. He made his first All Star Game start.[43]

In March, McCutchen participated in the 2017 World Baseball Classic with the United States national baseball team.

Awards[edit]

Personal life[edit]

McCutchen was known for his long dreadlocks,[3][86] which have spawned popularity days at PNC Park. Before the 2014 MLB season, he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "It's good to have an image. I have the hair, but eventually I'm gonna cut it".[40] On March 25, 2015, McCutchen cut his dreadlocks, which were sold through MLB's website via auction, with all proceeds benefiting Pirates Charities.[87] McCutchen teased his fans on social media for a big "secret" before unveiling his new haircut.[88]
