Yankees to acquire Giants OF McCutchen

  • Here comes Gary Sanchez’s much-needed return

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. He was owed $14.75 million this season, with roughly $2 million of that remaining to be paid.

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.

McCutchen was originally selected by the Pirates in the first round (11th overall) in the 2005 First-Year Player Draft.

The New York Yankees are dealing with significant injury issues and depth at the outfielder position is thin. San Francisco tried to deal McCutchen before the July 31 deadline, but were unable to do so.

The Fort Meade, Fla., native played his first nine Major League seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates (2009-17), making five NL All-Star Teams (2011-15) and winning the 2013 National League Most Valuable Player Award and 2015 Roberto Clemente Award.

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

He is in the final season of a six-year, $51.5 million contract he signed in March 2012. The 23-year-old, who has played both shortstop and second base this year, has split his 2018 season between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre; combined, he's put up a.287/.333/.446 line with 15 homers, 25 stolen bases, and 36 extra-base hits.

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