Yankees acquire Andrew McCutchen from Giants

McCutchen, 31, has batted.255 with 15 home runs and 55 RBIs in 130 games while playing primarily right field for the Giants.

The New York Post's Joel Sherman first reported the deal was close to completion and that infield prospect Abiatal Avelino would be part of the return for San Francisco. There was no point in holding onto McCutchen, a free agent at the end of the season, any longer. San Francisco tried to deal McCutchen before the July 31 deadline, but were unable to do so. He was traded by Pittsburgh with cash considerations to the Giants in exchange for RHP Kyle Crick, OF Bryan Reynolds and worldwide bonus pool money on January 15, 2018.

The teams announced the deal on the last day for trades to be done for players to be eligible for the postseason.

But when she couldn't give him the time he needed or wanted to spend with her, he got upset about that. It would have been nice to at least get an invite to the wedding like he was", Thomas Jr. complained.

The Yankees, meanwhile, have been without Aaron Judge for five weeks now due to a fractured wrist.

McCutchen is the second former National League MVP the Yankees have acquired in the past nine months.

The Giants hoped to make one last charge, but a loss Wednesday left them hopelessly behind three teams in the NL West, with Buster Posey already on the shelf and Steven Duggar likely headed for season-ending shoulder surgery. The Giants don't need McCutchen and the Yankees desperately need someone to fill in for Judge until he's back.

Defending champion Lexi Thompson has 10 holes to complete, but now sits well inside the cut line at six-under par. Sung Hyun Park relied on the same, steady style that has helped make her one of the LPGA Tour's top players.

Avelino, 23, is the Yankees' No. 23 prospect according to MLB Pipeline.

Avelino had a.945 OPS in Double-A this season but has struggled since a promotion, posting a.252/.291/.372 slash line in 74 Triple-A games.

De Paula is a 20-year-old starter who has pitched well with short-season Staten Island, going 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA and almost a strikeout per inning.
