New York Yankees acquire Andrew McCutchen in trade with Giants


While everyone was sleeping, the Yankees agreed to a trade with the San Francisco Giants to acquire McCutchen.

McCutchen is not yet with the Yankees - he traveled from San Francisco to NY on Friday and is expected to be in Saturday's lineup - but he did get a head start on conforming to team rules.

With the Giants this season, it's seemed at times like McCutchen is the only guy who hasn't missed significant time in the lineup, plugging away for a.255/.357/.415 line with 15 home runs and 13 stolen bases. McCutchen is not the first big name player to lose his beard after joining the Yankees, and he won't be the last.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that McCutchen is owed about $2 million for the rest of the campaign. McCutchen played for the Pirates for nine seasons after they drafted him in 2005.

Avelino was ranked as the Yankees' No. 23 prospect by MLB Pipeline prior to Friday's trade. He played 128 games (127 starts) in right field, committing just 2E in 255TC (.992).

McCutchen bolsters the Yankees' outfield depth ahead of a playoff push with Aaron Judge still recovering from a fractured wrist.

He is in the final season of a six-year, $51.5 million contract he signed in March 2012. He spent the first nine years of his major league career with the Pirates, rebuilding his value with a 2017 campaign that saw him hit.279 with 28 home runs and 88 RBIs. Avelino, a 23-year-old Dominican, was batting a combined.287 with 15 homers, 66 RBI and 25 steals this season with the Yankees' Class AAA and Class AA.
