FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Andrew McCutchen was supposed to make the trip from Bradenton to Fort Myers on Saturday for a game against the Red Sox, but flu-like symptoms kept the Pirates outfielder back at home base.

McCutchen last played Thursday when he went 0-for-3 against the Orioles. He has two home runs this spring, but otherwise hasn't done exceedingly well at the plate, hitting .194/.293/.389 in Grapefruit League play.
