Pirates send McCutchen to Giants

Pirates send McCutchen to Giants

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic first reported the deal, which is pending the completion of a physical, according to reports.

The trade has not been officially announced by either team, and it is unclear what Pittsburgh will receive in exchange for the five-time All-Star. McCutchen has been the centerpiece for the Pirates since 2009, but now he will have a new home in San Francisco as they try to redeem their 98-loss season in 2017.

McCutchen has played mainly centerfield for the pirates but the Giants will likely change that as his advanced numbers in center don't really check out. Unlike Longoria, McCutchen has just one season remaining before he's eligible for free agency. San Francisco traded away Denard Span in that trade, creating an opening in center field.

McCutchen, 31, has played his whole career with Pittsburg and has never hit less than 12 home runs in a season.

At this point, Crick is the only Giants player that we know of involved in the McCutchen trade, and the club has reportedly held onto Heliot Ramos, Chris Shaw, and Tyler Beede, their No. 1, 2, and 3 prospects respectively. The other players are still unknown.

Nonetheless, such a move comes as no surprise following Pittsburgh's trade of Cole while also considering San Francisco's need for an outfielder.

Neal Huntington and his staff will save $14.5 million from McCutchen's contract, barring what they get in return. It will be a tough race for the Giants in 2018, considering they have the Dodgers, Rockies, and Diamondbacks to deal with in their division.
