Yankees trade for Andrew McCutchen

The trade comes as Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is taking longer than expected to return from a wrist fracture.

According to multiple reports, NY and San Francisco have reached agreement on a deal that will send the 2013 MVP to NY, where he'll immediately become an upgrade on Shane Robinson in the outfield while also providing insurance in the event that Aaron Judge can't return from a broken wrist. A McCutchen trade was long rumored as the Giants fell out of the playoff hunt this month, but the team waited until almost the last moment to part with the outfielder.

The game's latest update, launched on August 23, offers new features such as the Score Royale LTM and the Rift-To-Go items. Today's news is simply that Epic Games is making a version of the rift which can fit in your inventory.

The Giants acquired the longtime Pirates outfielder this January in a trade that sent pitcher Kyle Crick and outfield prospect Bryan Reynolds to the Pirates. He's hitting.255 with 15 homers and 55 RBIs for the Giants. He'll be a free agent after this season.

The durable McCutchen had played at least 153 games in each of the past three seasons for the Pirates, batting.279 with 28 home runs and 88 RBIs in 156 games in 2017. According to Bob Nightengale, the trade has not officially been finalized and an announcement of the trade is unlikely to come from either the Giants or Yankees. The Giants are in fourth place in the NL West at 67-68.
