McCutchen signed a three-year, $50 million contract with the Phillies in December 2018. He led off for Philadelphia against Atlanta starter Julio Tehran. He sent a 2-0 fastball deep into the centerfield seats.

McCutchen came to Philadelphia after nine seasons in Pittsburgh and one season split between the Yankees and Giants. He is a five-time All-Star and winner of the 2013 National League MVP. 

The former Pirates' star is one of Philadelphia's many offseason additions. The Phillies traded for catcher J.T. Realmuto on Feb. 7 and signed Bryce Harper to a 13-year, $330 million deal on Feb. 28.
