2013 Fantasy Baseball: OF Andrew McCutchen Heating Up For Playoffs
McCutchen has an unheard of .431 batting average this month to go along with a .542 On Base Percentage and .603 Slugging Percentage. The 26-year-old has also added 10 RBIs and five stolen bases in August. Most fantasy pundits only talk about Mike Trout or Bryce Harper, but Cutch is having just as impressive of a fantasy campaign.
The center fielder has already smashed 17 home runs and racked up 69 RBIs on the year. His hot performance this month has helped raise his average all the way up to .318, which is currently fourth in the National League. Cutch was in contention to win a NL batting title last season, as he finished with a .327 batting average, and it looks like he will again be in the conversation this season.
He has even added 26 stolen bases to his amazing power totals. He should be able to add at least two or three stolen bases per week down the stretch, which will only increase his ever-growing value as the year finishes.
McCutchen will continue to be an elite outfielder moving forward. He is playing his best baseball right now and will be one of the most dangerous hitters to rely on in the fantasy playoffs.
