Yankees officially get Andrew McCutchen for two minor-leaguers

San Francisco Giants center fielder Andrew McCutchen (22) hits an RBI double during the ninth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field.

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

With the Giants this season, it's seemed at times like McCutchen is the only guy who hasn't missed significant time in the lineup, plugging away for a.255/.357/.415 line with 15 home runs and 13 stolen bases.




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. That means he has roughly $2 million left on his deal this season.

In 10 appearances (nine starts) this season with Single-A Staten Island, De Paula, the Yankees' No. 26 prospect, was 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA. Since being promoted, he has hit.252 with just five homers. He finished third in the vote in 2012 and '14 and fifth in '15. The Pittsburgh Pirates traded McCutchen ahead of the 2018 season to the Giants.

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. 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. NY holds a four-game lead over the Oakland Athletics for the No. 1 wild card in the AL.
