New York Yankees Land Andrew McCutchen in Trade With San Francisco Giants

New York Yankees Land Andrew McCutchen in Trade With San Francisco Giants

The Pittsburgh Pirates traded McCutchen ahead of the 2018 season to the Giants.

Andrew McCutchen is headed for the postseason, but not with the Giants. San Francisco tried to deal McCutchen before the July 31 deadline, but were unable to do so. He was traded to San Francisco for right-hander Kyle Crick, minor league outfielder Bryan Reynolds and cash during the offseason. Those numbers are a significant downturn from his production with the Pirates, as he hit.279 with 28 home runs just last season before being traded. McCutchen is not owed much for the remainder of the year - only about $2.5 million - but as both the Giants and the Yankees are very close to the luxury tax threshold and do not wish to exceed it, they needed to split that money up in a pretty precise way.

The Yankees, meanwhile, have been without Aaron Judge for five weeks now due to a fractured wrist.

Avelino, 23, is rated as the No. 23 prospect in the Yankees' system. Signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2011 with Miguel Andujar and Luis Severino, Avelino is known for having a good arm and versatility that allows him to play second, short or third.

De Paula is a 20-year-old starter who has pitched well with short-season Staten Island, going 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA and almost a strikeout per inning. He sits in the mid 90s with his fastball and is believed to be a potential back-end starter down the line.

McCutchen will be with the Yankees for the season's final month and, as it appears likely, the Wild Card game.

McCutchen is batting.255 with 15 homers, 55 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 130 games this season. The Yankees begin a three-game series in Oakland on Monday.
