Andrew McCutchen was an early talent, growing up in Fort Meade, Florida. He was on the varsity team as an eighth grade and in addition, was regarded as one of the top football recruits in the nation. While he committed to the University of Florida, he was drafted 11th overall in the 2005 MLB Draft to the Pittsburgh Pirates, and decided to go pro instead of playing for the Gators. He spent four years in the minors, before being pulled up to the Pirates' active roster on June 3, 2009. He went on to spend 11 seasons in Pittsburgh, where he was the 4x Silver Slugger Award winner and NL MVP in 2015. It was a golden time for McCutchen, as we was a 5x consecutive All-Star from 2011-2015. He was traded to the San Francisco Giants in 2018 and traded once again in 2019 to the New York Yankees. In 2020, he signed a three-year, $50-million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies and through 2020 was 5th in active major leaguers in career triples.
Andrew's style is very relaxed and reflective of his very athletic nature.
