The Milwaukee Brewers look like a legitimate World Series contender this season, leading the NL Central with a 32-19 record as they enter June. They could look even more dangerous if it wasn't for outfielder Andrew McCutchen's current hitting slump.
The 35-year-old veteran has gone without a hit in his last six games. While that could be demoralizing to some players, McCutchen showed a good attitude when he tweeted about his slump on Tuesday.
Andrew McCutchen Hitting Slump
McCutchen tweeted that he's "gonna get thru this funk" mere hours after going 0-for-5 in an 8-7 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Beating himself up over the slump wouldn't do him any favors, so it's nice to see that the former 2013 American League MVP is trying to stay positive.
The former 2005 first-round draft pick began the 2022 MLB season with three home runs, 17 RBIs and a .258 batting average in his first 32 games. Unfortunately, he's gone 0-for-26 over the subsequent six games, striking out seven times without drawing a walk.
McCutchen is no longer in his prime, but he's better than what his slump may leave some to believe. If he can find that confidence that he had at the start of the year, the Brewers will be better for it.
