Giants acquire Andrew McCutchen as era ends in Pittsburgh

As Jon Heyman and Robert Murray of FanRag Sports tweeted, talks between the Giants and McCutchen intensified quickly leading up to the trade.

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.

Kyle Crick is reportedly a part of the trade, according to Alex Pavlovic.

The 2013 #Nl Mvp has had an interesting last few seasons. He collected six saves and 39 strikeouts. It's 2013 all over again in San Francisco. He slashed.312/.364/.462, with 10 HR and 63 RBI in 540 plate appearances for the San Jose Giants.

McCutchen hit 28 homers in 2017 with a.279/.363/.486 slash in 156 games.

The Giants have already traded for veteran Evan Longoria to take over at third base, so they are stacking up with veterans. Last year, their top home run hitter was Brandon Belt, who led the Giants in home runs with just 17. He is a defensive upgrade as well.

The 31-year old is a former National League Most Valuable Player. However, McCutchen proved last season that he's far from over the hill and still has plenty left in the tank.

Neal Huntington and his staff will save $14.5 million from McCutchen's contract, barring what they get in return.

After nine fabulous seasons in Pittsburgh that saw McCutchen become a five-time All-Star, a four-time Silver Slugger Award victor, a Gold Glove victor in 2012, and National League MVP in 2013, his tenure in Pittsburgh has come to an end.

In that respect, McCutchen is a big upgrade.
