The Pirates Officially Announce Andrew McCutchen Signing

Published:

The Pittsburgh Pirates officially announced the news we heard last week. Outfielder Andrew McCutchen has returned to the team on a one-year contract. He was drafted by the Pirates, and spent the 2009-2017 seasons with the team. No corresponding move has been announced yet. The Pirates plan to run his press conference on their pages for Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and the team’s official site.

McCutchen is coming off a 2022 season with the Milwaukee Brewers where he had a .237/.316/.384 line in 580 plate appearances. He had 1.1 WAR according to Baseball-Reference. He put up 1.4 WAR with the Philadelphia Phillies in 2021, with better walk and power numbers than the 2022 season.

More on this announcement later.

I’ll include a link to the press conference when it becomes available. It starts at 3:30 PM. Here’s a video just posted by the Pirates

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball. When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
