In the first half of the 2007 season, McCutchen didn't look ready for the challenge Pittsburgh gave him by sending him to Double-A at age 20. He proved his mettle by responding well to the adversity, hit like the top outfield prospect he is in the second half and finished the season with a strong showing in Triple-A before performing well in the Arizona Fall League.

That AFL performance could help serve as a springboard for the 21-year-old in 2008. He's got five-tool potential, plays gold-glove caliber defense in center field and the ability to either lead off or drive in runs from the middle of the lineup. He could settle in as a Pirates cornerstone at some point during the 2008 season.
