Yankees acquire OF Andrew McCutchen from Giants

Yankees acquire OF Andrew McCutchen from Giants

WFAN baseball insider Ken Rosenthal reported that the Giants have agreed to pay half of the $2.4 million McCutchen is owed for the rest of this season.

The Giants acquired McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates over the winter in hopes that he'd lead them back to the postseason. NY holds a four-game lead over the Oakland Athletics for the No. 1 wild card in the AL.

He is in the final season of a six-year, $51.5 million contract he signed in March 2012. Instead, his tenure in the Bay Area amounted to slightly less than one full season, as the Giants have slowly slid out of the playoff race over the past month.

McCutchen, 31, has batted.255 with 15 home runs and 55 RBIs in 130 games while playing primarily right field for the Giants.

McCutchen could help fill in for an injured Aaron Judge in the outfield, who has not played since July 26 when he suffered a chip fracture in his right wrist.

So this is a cheap veteran in the outfield who is capable of giving the Yankees good at bats down the stretch. 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.

De Paula, 20, has been pitching for the Yankees' Short-Season A affiliate in Staten Island. 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. The Yankees brought him stateside in 2013 after he hit.302 in his pro debut.
