New York Yankees: Yankees acquire Andrew McCutchen

Giants trade outfielder Andrew McCutchen to Yankees for prospects, reports say | The Sacramento Bee

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.

Shortly after Olney's report, New York Post columnist Joel Sherman began to fill in the details.

The Yankees could use another outfielder and have never been shy about bringing in big names.

The veteran outfielder was traded from the San Francisco Giants to the Yankees on Thursday, and while he's excited about the prospect of playing in the playoffs with NY, he does have one very unique concern.

McCutchen, 31, would help a Yankees outfield that's been without slugger Aaron Judge since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch that fractured his right wrist. He was a five-time All-Star with Pittsburgh and the 2013 NL MVP.

Meanwhile, Stanton has played in 83 straight games, while Judge's replacements in right field, including Shane Robinson and Neil Walker, a veteran infielder pressed into service, have struggled at the plate.

Shaw has hit 24 home runs in 101 games with the Sacramento River Cats this season.

The trade is expected to be completed by Friday, the deadline for players on new teams to be eligible for postseason rosters.

McCutchen is in his first year in San Francisco, but the last year of a long-term extension he signed as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who originally drafted McCutchen out of Florida high school in 2005 with the 11th overall selection. The Giants acquired him from the Pirates before the start of the regular season. 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.
