Yankees to acquire Giants OF McCutchen

Report: Yankees acquire OF McCutchen

McCutchen, 31, would help a Yankees outfield that's been without slugger Aaron Judge since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch that fractured his right wrist.

The clock is ticking for contenders to make a trade, and the Bronx Bombers have chose to bring in a former MVP to regain momentum.

McCutchen, a pending free agent, is hitting.255/.357/.415 (110 OPS+) with 15 homers, 28 doubles, 55 RBIs, and 13 stolen bases over 130 games. While he isn't the star he once was with the Pittsburgh Pirates, McCutchen still presents a better option than the likes of Shane Robinson, who has been getting the bulk of the playing time with Judge on the disabled list.

Instead of waiting for Judge to return to the diamond, management is finally coming to their senses.

A person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday night the Yankees would send infielder Abiatal Avelino and another minor leaguer to San Francisco for McCutchen.

Astronaut Robb Kulin quits Nasa halfway through training
Kulin will formally leave NASA on Friday, becoming the first astronaut-in-training to leave that position in the past 50 years. He studied in California and graduated with a doctorate in engineering from the University of California-San Diego in 2010.

Following two very bad losses at home, the Yankees might have found the ideal medicine for their recent struggles in adding McCutchen.

In order for a player to be eligible for a team's postseason run, trades must be final by Friday.

The Giants acquired McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates last offseason. If the deal is completed, he'll join another former Pirate, Neil Walker, in NY.

McCutchen came into the league as a center fielder, though he has exclusively played right field this season. NY holds a four-game lead over the Oakland Athletics for the No. 1 wild card in the AL.
