Pirates deal 5-time All-Star McCutchen to Giants

How the Right Mattress Can Ease Back Pain

The San Francisco Giants have agreed to acquire outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates, pending a review of medical records, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Before you check the calendar, no it's not 1993 again.

For the second time in less than a month, the San Francisco Giants acquired a franchise player from a small-market team with designs on rebuilding.

Toyota Avalon Promises to be a Functional Family-Friendly Cruiser
Designed and assembled in the USA , the new 2019 Toyota Avalon with be loaded with technology from the interior to the engine bay. As more Americans flock to SUVs, the number of automakers still competing in traditional sedan segments has shrunk.

The 31-year-old has spent all nine major league seasons with Pittsburgh.

It is not yet clear what the Giants are sending back to the Pirates, although FanRag Sports' Robert Murray reported Monday that top pitching prospect Tyler Beede is not included in the deal. 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.

In almost 6,000 plate appearance (5,829) with the Pirates, McCutchen produced a.291 batting average, 203 home runs, 725 RBI, while getting on-base at.379 clip and slugging.487. But the team has in the past pushed back against the idea of trading him.

Whenever a marquee free agent signs in the offseason, people around the league talk about the floodgates opening for other deals. The Pirates were unable to consummate a deal involving him then, but moved him from center to right field before the 2017 season.

Were the Pirates still a contending team, they likely would've held on to McCutchen.

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. While Shaw looks to have a future as a starting first baseman or outfielder, there are some who believe he would be best suited as a designated hitter. Pittsburgh doesn't get anything from playing guys like Freese or Cervelli next year.
