Congrats @TheCUTCH22 on being named NL Player of the Week (7/13-15). In that time he batted .583 (7-12) w/3 HR 4RBI & 3 runs scored. Cutch is the first Bucco since Jason Bay in 2006 to win the award in back-to-back weeks.

Because of the All-Star break, this week's award only covers one series. The Bucs lost two of three against the Brewers, but McCutchen homered in all three games. He's currently first in the N.L. in batting average (.371), second in homers (with 21, five behind Ryan Braun) and second in RBIs (64, tied with Braun and one behind Carlos Beltran). It would be amazing if he could keep this up, but if he does, we might start to hear Triple Crown buzz. McCutchen also leads the major leagues in OPS (1.074) and Wins Above Replacement (5.2).
