Yankees land McCutchen from Giants for 2 prospects

Yankees land McCutchen from Giants for 2 prospects

He's owed the remainder of his $14.75 million salary and is a free agent after the season.

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.

The Yankees sent infielder Abiatal Avelino and right-hander Juan De Paula to San Francisco for McCutchen and cash considerations. McCutchen is not the first big name player to lose his beard after joining the Yankees, and he won't be the last.

The Yankees are reportedly working to try to finalize a deal for Andrew McCutchen.

McCutchen, the 2013 National League MVP and a Gold Glove center fielder, hit.279 with 28 home runs, 88 RBIs, 94 runs and 11 stolen bases past year.


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

McCutchen bolsters the Yankees' outfield depth ahead of a playoff push with Aaron Judge still recovering from a fractured wrist. While the 31-year-old McCutchen is far from the form that saw him make five-straight All-Star Game appearances, he's still a competent veteran bat.

If the deal goes through before the end of Friday, McCutchen will be eligible for the Yankees' postseason roster.

He is in the final season of a six-year, $51.5 million contract he signed in March 2012.

Avelino, 23, was hitting a combined.287 with 15 homers, 66 RBIs and 25 steals at Triple-A Scranton Wilkes/Barre and Double-A Trenton. The Giants acquired him from the Pirates before the start of the regular season.
