After struggling the first two months of this season, much like most of 2016, Andrew McCutchen was a huge offensive threat in June, and that production was good enough for him to be named the National League Player of the Month.

McCutchen’s month of June very much resembled his MVP level form. He posted a .505 on base percentage, which was the best mark in one month by a Pirate since McCutchen had a .510 OBP in July of 2012. According to Baseball-Reference, his OPS of 1.193 is tied for 11th best by a Pirate in a single month since 1913. The outstanding June numbers for McCutchen now gives him an .866 OPS and a 126 OPS+ for the season so far.
