Pirates play for another day, trade Andrew McCutchen to Giants

Report: Pirates trade McCutchen to Giants

Almost a month after adding Evan Longoria to their lineup, the San Francisco Giants have agreed to a trade Monday with the Pittsburgh Pirates for five-time All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

After trading Gerrit Cole to the Houston Astros, it was believed that McCutchen would be the next in line to be dealt.

The trade has not been officially announced by either team, and it is unclear what Pittsburgh will receive in exchange for the five-time All-Star. The 31-year-old superstar had been rumored to be on the move for over a year.

The Pittsburgh Pirates parted ways with one-time MVP victor and five-time All-Star Andrew McCutchen, sending him to the San Francisco Giants.

For the second time in less than a month, the San Francisco Giants acquired a franchise player from a small-market team with designs on rebuilding. Good for him, as he can be a free agent after the 2018 season, and good for the Pirates, who'd seemingly been shopping him for better than a year.

The return for Andrew McCutchen is not yet known, but when it is known we will have you covered here at Rum Bunter so stay tuned to the site.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports notes that the deal is not expected to stop the Giants from pursuing another top tier outfielder this off-season, particularly Lorenzo Cain. He bounced back from a tough 2016 season to hit.279/.363/.486 with 28 home runs in 2017. He has one year and $14.5 million left on his contract. But relief pitcher Kyle Crick reportedly is part of the deal. The addition of McCutchen should definitely benefit the Giants' everyday lineup. But now they're adding to their outfield-acquiring Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates. The question remains is what, if any, other assets will be traded off by Pittsburgh.
