Profile: McCutchen is coming off his worst season by a wide measure. Part of that was a career-worst -18.7 fielding rating. The claim is that he played too shallow. To be this negative, it means he failed to steal singles - the whole point of playing shallow. If so, why didn't the Pirates re-position him? Probably because the "too shallow" argument is a non-sequitur. McCutchen hasn't passed the smell test as an above average center fielder for years. Meanwhile, he's flanked by Starling Marte and Gregory Polanco - two superior defenders. It was past time for McCutchen to move to an outfield corner. The once-great slugger declined at the plate too. The cracks that appeared during his 2015 campaign fissured into serious issues. The most glaring decline was in his typically high batting average on balls in play. Teams figured it out - McCutchen is shiftable. They ran 149 traditional shifts, during which he was only 74% as good as the league average according to weighted runs creatd. He had never been shifted more than 74 times in a season prior to 2016. Expect more shifts against the pull-happy righty. On the plus side, he has enough athleticism to intentionally defeat the shift. It's something to watch, but fantasy owners will certainly have to take on some risk if they roll the dice on him. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: McCutchen was a disaster on defense last year, and his merely average offense was a massive let down. His career began with seven Hall of Fame worthy seasons. We'll see if he can make adjustments and recover the HOF pace in 2017.
