McCutchen went 3-for-3 with a homer, a walk, three RBI and two runs against the Brewers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Through this season's first 45 games, McCutchen was hitting a brutal .200/.271/.359 with six homers and 20 RBI, but the light came on in late May: Over the 24 games since, he's hit a spectacular .402 with eight homers and 23 RBI. That's both intriguing and confusing output from a guy who's coming off his worst MLB season and was widely considered to be in decline -- an idea his early slump did nothing to dispel. However, it's certainly tantalizing whenever we see this kind of outburst from a guy who's done it before.

EDGE Analysis

McCutchen went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBI against Colorado on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Since moving to the sixth slot in the lineup May 26, McCutchen is batting .397/.480/.730 with five homers and 15 RBI in 75 plate appearances. Historically, the outfielder has put up some of his best monthly numbers in June (.313/.386/.516), though he hit just .202 last June. He's in a good spot right now and gives fantasy owners the option to either ride out his streak or perhaps sell high on his value.

McCutchen went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run during Monday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

McCutchen has gone 24-for-61 with three home runs, 12 RBI, 15 runs and a 1.119 OPS during a 17 games since being bumped down the lineup. He's now hit sixth in each of the past 16 outings, and the demotion has clicked for the veteran. He's proven capable of posting huge numbers over prolonged hot stretches in the past, and he's already increased his batting average 51 points through this 17-game stretch.

McCutchen went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and three runs scored during Sunday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The ninth-inning homer just padded Pittsburgh's lead, but it was a welcomed blast for fantasy owners. McCutchen is riding an 11-for-27 stretch at the plate with three homers, eight RBI and nine runs through his past eight games, and the stretch has him up to a .232/.313/.419 slash line for the season. It's worth noting that he's batted sixth in each of those eight contests, so perhaps the shift down the lineup is helping to kick-start his bat.

McCutchen went 1-for-3 with a walk-off solo home run in the ninth and two runs scored in Monday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

After getting a few days off to clear his head recently, McCutchen has now homered in two of his last three games and seems rejuvenated at the dish. Despite hitting just .215 on the season, the 30-year-old outfielder has 23 runs scored, 24 RBI and five steals in 207 plate appearances. While most likely believe the decline is full effect for McCutchen, he could also be in the midst of turning his season around.

McCutchen went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, a double and three RBI during Saturday's extra-innings win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Currently sporting a disastrous .212/.286/.385 slash line through 199 plate appearances, McCutchen is struggling to find the form that made him a fantasy superstar earlier in his career. He's providing respectable counting starts with seven homers, 23 RBI, 21 runs and five stolen bases, but he also has just eight multi-hit games all season. It's worth noting that McCutchen finished 2016 well with a .284 batting average and .852 OPS over the final two months, so perhaps another midseason turnaround is ahead.

McCutchen went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The Pirates kept him out of the starting lineup Wednesday and Thursday in hopes of rebooting his season, but the initial results look pretty much the same. He struck out on three pitches in the ninth inning against reliever Fernando Salas and his 91-mph fastball. Manager Clint Hurdle moved McCutchen down to sixth in the batting order in hopes of taking some pressure off, but the outfielder is now slashing .167/.207/.256 with a 4:18 K:BB in his last 78 at-bats.
