Andrew McCutchen traded to the Giants

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Major League Baseball insider Ken Rosenthal reported Monday afternoon that sources said the San Francisco Giants have agreed to acquire outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates, pending a review of medical records. There is no word on the players being exchanged for McCutchen, but it's been a tough week for Pirates fans after the trade of Gerrit Cole last week.

McCutchen, 31, has played his whole career with Pittsburg and has never hit less than 12 home runs in a season. Coming off a disappointing season, the Giants made it a priority to pull off some impact moves this offseason. While McCutchen has slipped defensively in recent years, he likely would be asked to move to right field in San Francisco, with a superior defender - potentially an in-house choice like Gorkys Hernandez or Steven Duggar - patrolling center field and Hunter Pence sliding over to left.

This isn't remotely the same as when Pittsburgh let Barry Bonds walk following the 1992 season, which is the last time the Pirates lost a hitter as historically good as McCutchen.

The 2013 #Nl Mvp has had an interesting last few seasons. In the 20 years after his departure, the team failed to make the postseason. The veteran can become a free agent after the season.

The rebuild is officially on in Pittsburgh.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have, finally, after a couple of years of trade rumors, shipped out All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen.

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.

McCutchen averaged 11.1 FanDuel points per game in 2017 over 650 plate appearances.

Although they have agreed to a trade for McCutchen, the Giants might not be done in their pursuit of outfield depth.
