Please don't take my correction as harsh sarcasm, but 'cut' indicates a ball that runs away from a righty (from a right handed pitcher).
Fade is to describe a change up that falls away from a lefty and in to a righty.
The truth is, a good pitcher learns or is taught how to throw a truly straight change and not some stock pitch that ultimately drifts down and into the hitter (regardless of which side of the plate).
I got paid to play so I'm a bit testy on stuff like this!
