2009 Topps Red Hot Rookie #3

23 06 2009

See what happens, Topps, when you cut the Red Hot Rookie set in half?  You get rookies people may actually want!  And well designed cards help, too.  It’s Topps Series 2 Red Hot Rookie #3, Andrew McCutchen!


McCutchen is ranked #2 by Baseball America in the Pirates organization this year behind Pedro Alvarez, last years 1st rounder for Pittsburgh.  McCutchen for now projects as a lead off type hitter, although if his power develops he’d be better suited hitting third.  He’s still learning how to steal bases, too.

Since his call up, though, he’s been hitting .333 with 1 HR and 2 SBs.  Pittsburgh will give him plenty of time to learn the game at the major lrague level since they have nothing to lose by doing so.

The 2009 Topps Red Hot Rookies:

#1 Fernando Martinez, OF, Mets
#2 Gordon Beckham, SS, White Sox (1 in 10 will be auto’ed)
#3 Andrew McCutchen, OF, Pirates
