McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a triple, two walks and a run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning victory over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger has salvaged his season in the second half, and is now slashing .318/.406/.612 with six homers and 18 RBI in 85 September at-bats. That tally includes four straight multi-hit efforts and a current 11-game hitting streak for McCutchen, who's also eclipsed the 20-homer mark for the sixth straight season.

McCutchen went 2-for-4 with his 24th homer Wednesday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hit safely in nine straight, going 15-for-39 (.385) with four homers and 13 RBI in that span -- vintage McCutchen production that we haven't often seen this season. It's probably too little, too late for fantasy owners who have been burned by the 29-year-old outfielder this year, but if he can carry this hot streak to the regular season's conclusion, he'll certainly raise his stock for next year. After all, it's a little early in McCutchen's career for the sort of precipitous decline he's had this season to be the new normal.

McCutchen went 2-for-5 with a two-run double Tuesday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Since returning from a three-game benching at the beginning of August, McCutchen is hitting .283/.386/.476 with eight homers and 31 RBI in 197 plate appearances. His 29:29 BB:K is in stark contrast to the 35:107 he posted prior to August. The outfielder will look for a more complete rebound in 2017 at age 30.

McCutchen had only two hits in nine at-bats in Saturday's doubleheader but racked up five RBI against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He hit a couple other balls hard in the twinbill sweep. Following a week-long slump, McCutchen is 9-for-22 with three homers and 10 RBI. The outfielder has just three hits in 17 career at-bats off Sunday starter Dan Straily.

McCutchen went 3-for-5 with two home runs, three RBI and crossed the plate three times in Thursday's 15-2 shelling of Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

McCutchen's two solo shots increased his season total to 23, matching last year's total. Despite duplicating 2015's homer total, McCutchen still sits 30 RBI short of last season's total of 96, and his .250 average is more than 40 points lower than where it finished a year ago. The 29-year-old, now in his eighth MLB campaign, has also struck out 133 times this season, matching his career high mark set last year.

McCutchen went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in a 6-2 loss at the hands of the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was McCutchen's 21st of the season, and broke a 2-for-20 slump over his previous seven games. It's been a disappointing season for McCutchen, who is just three years removed from an MVP season, and failed to be named an All-Star this year for the first time since 2010. He's hitting just .247 after hitting .314 and .292 in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

McCutchen went 0-for-3 Monday and has one hit in his last 17 at-bats.

EDGE Analysis

He's drawn seven walks in six games, but his batting improvement -- he posted an .851 OPS from Aug. 5 to Sept. 6 -- has waned in the last week. McCutchen's lackluster defense has also continued to haunt the former NL MVP, who will turn 30 years of age in October. He's under contract through next season with an option for 2018, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Pittsburgh look to move McCutchen -- either in the offseason or during the 2017 campaign.

McCutchen hit his 20th home run of the season Monday in a 12-6 loss at the hands of the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

McCutchen now has six straight seasons with 20 home runs, although is batting average of .253 is way down from the .292 mark he posted a year ago. McCutchen has just 60 RBI on the year, a mark that can probably be chalked up to bad luck, considering the Pirates are top-five in the MLB in on-base percentage, and McCutchen is hitting .295 with runners in scoring position.

McCutchen hit a solo homer, going 1-for-4, in a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old center fielder has definitely found his stroke as of late. He has a hit in 10 of his last 11 games, and he's reached base in 11 straight. McCutchen has been far more patient since his benching the first week of August. Since Aug. 5, he has 18 walks versus 17 strikeouts. He is hitting .253 with 19 homers, 58 RBI, 68 runs and six steals in 491 at-bats this season.

McCutchen went 3-for-4 with a double in Friday's 1-0 loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger is finally starting to hit his stride at the plate, now having reached safely in 10 straight contests. McCutchen has three multi-hit efforts over that span as well, along with three doubles, a homer and five RBI. Although his current .253 average sits a full 40 points below his career mark in that category, the 30-year-old has a strong chance of hitting the 20-homer mark for the sixth straight campaign with a full month of baseball remaining.
