Andrew McCutchen Named NL Player of the Week

The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced that center fielder Andrew McCutchen has been named the National League Player of the Week for the week ending June 15th.

During the week, McCutchen led the Majors with four homers, 13 RBIs, 30 total bases and a 1.034 OPS. Among NL players, he led with a .483 average and .559 on base percentage. He had at least one hit in every game last week and currently has an 11 game hit streak.

This is the third time in his career he has won the NL Player of the Week, accomplishing it in back-to-back weeks during the 2012 season.

  • Kinda makes Polanco’s .387/.800 1HR 5RBI look absolutely pathetic, doesn’t it 🙂

  • Shouldn’t putting up 2 weeks worth of numbers mean he gets 2 player of the week awards?

  • Not to be that guy but the numbers in your article are incorrect. Over the last week Cutch is SLUGGING 1.034 and has a ree-diculous 1.593 OPS.

    To be followed shortly by player of the month.

  • This could be the hottest streak of his career. Keep it going against the Redlegs.

  • Working on MVP part 2!

    • LJS: Right now he is working on getting elected to the All Star Game. He made a rush last week and overtook Gomez and Stanton and is now in second place. With a bunch of home games before the deadline of July 3rd, I hope he is safe. Please folks, get online to MLB and get your votes in for he and Walker – the process is easy.
