Yankees acquire Andrew McCutchen from Giants

Andrew McCutchen is officially headed to the Bronx.

While the New York Yankees are not anxious that Aaron Judge won't make it back to the field at all, whether he'll be 100% when the playoffs come around has come into question recently, and on Thursday evening, the Yankees snapped up the best insurance option available, trading for Andrew McCutchen from the San Francisco Giants. The hit was the fifth of the game for McCutchen.

The Brewers have acquired left-hander Gio Gonzalez from the Nationals in exchange for two minor leaguers, according to multiple reports from Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic and MLB.com's Jamal Collier.


McCutchen is batting.255 with 15 home runs and 55 home runs for the Giants this season. The teams have reportedly agreed to split that figure down the middle, meaning San Francisco is sending $1.2 million to the Yankees, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. He was owed $14.75 million this season, with roughly $2 million of that remaining to be paid. Before coming to the Giants, he played all nine of his major-league seasons with the Pirates. Since being promoted, he has hit.252 with just five homers. The team's depth at the position has been tested with Aaron Judge on the disabled list since July 27 with a chip fracture in his right wrist.

Andrew McCutchen's stint in San Francisco didn't last a full season.

Following a loss to the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night, the Yankees are 84-50 and 8 1/2 games back of the Boston Red Sox in the American League East. However, he's still battling with the injury, prompting NY to make a move.
