Yankees Acquire Andrew McCutchen From Giants

Saturday, 01 Sep, 2018

While the New York Yankees are not anxious that Aaron Judge won't make it back to the field at all, whether he'll be 100% when the playoffs come around has come into question recently, and on Thursday evening, the Yankees snapped up the best insurance option available, trading for Andrew McCutchen from the San Francisco Giants.

A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday night the Yankees would send infielder Abiatal Avelino and another minor leaguer to San Francisco for McCutchen.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that McCutchen is owed about $2 million for the rest of the campaign.

McCutchen is batting.255 with 15 home runs and 55 home runs for the Giants this season.

In order for a player to be eligible for a team's postseason run, trades must be final by Friday.

McCutchen, though far removed from his All-Star and NL MVP (2013) days with the Pirates, gives the Yankees much-needed insurance in the outfield as Aaron Judge lingers on the disabled list with a chip fracture in his right wrist.

The 31-year-old McCutchen has been the Giants' regular right fielder.

The deal comes in the wake of New York's concerns at the outfield spot.

McCutchen made it to the majors in 2009 with Pittsburgh, immediately making an impact, hitting.286/.365/.471 with 12 home runs and 22 stolen bases in his rookie year.

NY sits 8.5 games back of the Boston Red Sox, but is almost guaranteed a spot in the NL Wildcard.

Avelino, 23, combined with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and Double-A Trenton to hit.287 (133-for-464) with 65R, 13 doubles, 8 triples, 15HR and 66RBI in 123 games this season.
