New York Yankees: Yankees acquire Andrew McCutchen

Giants trade outfielder Andrew McCutchen to Yankees for prospects, reports say | The Sacramento Bee

THURSDAY: ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Yankees have acquired outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the Giants in exchange for a pair of prospects.

The Giants officially announced the trade of outfielder Andrew McCutchen to the New York Yankees on Friday morning.

McCutchen is batting.255 with 15 home runs and 55 home runs for the Giants this season.

Trump Endorses Rick Scott, Ron DeSantis in Florida Races
The primaries in Arizona and Florida on Tuesday are the last big day of state primaries before November's elections. Then in December, Trump tweeted out his support for DeSantis, who wasn't even in the race at the time .

McCutchen is not yet with the Yankees - he traveled from San Francisco to NY on Friday and is expected to be in Saturday's lineup - but he did get a head start on conforming to team rules. San Francisco tried to deal McCutchen before the July 31 deadline, but were unable to do so. The deal would likely include more as well. We've certainly leaned on him heavily. He built his way up to the point of one of the game's most impressive players, winning the National League MVP in 2013 and finishing in the top 5 four straight seasons. Durability has also been a theme for the five-time All-Star, playing in at least 146 games each season since 2010.

McCutchen is in the middle of the final season of a six-year, $51.5 million contract he signed in March of 2012, a deal that turned into a bargain as he became a star and powered Pittsburgh's turnaround.

In New York, McCutchen will be reunited with longtime Pittsburgh teammate Neil Walker, where both will have a chance to win a first World Series championship. This season, between Double-A Trenton and Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Avelino hit.287/.333/.446 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI across 501 trips to the plate. De Paula, 20, was at Class A Staten Island this seaso, going 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA in 10 appearances (nine starts).
