Andrew McCutchen has struggled this season, which has triggered rumors that the Pittsburgh Pirates might look to unload his contract.
Even with a recent streak of good games, McCutchen is slashing just .235/.313/.413. He will become a free agent after the 2018 season.
"I've never thought about anything else," McCutchen said of playing elsewhere. "This is the only uniform that I've ever worn. This is somewhere I want to be. I can't control the business side -- where I am or whatnot. I don't focus on that.
"I just focus on my team. I focus on the guys around me, because the more I try to focus on where I am going to be … 'Am I going to stay here?' -- the more I lose that time with my teammates and friends. … I try not to let my mind go there. I'm focusing on right now. Of course, this is where I want to be."
