Andrew McCutchen drew an incredible picture for a kid with cancer

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 22:02:12 GMT

The news that Andrew McCutchen has reportedly been traded to the San Francisco Giants isn’t totally surprising, but it’s the kind of news that Pittsburgh Pirates fans — both young and old — will take hard. McCutchen has been the face of the Pirates for years, and is exactly the kind of dedicated, generous, gregarious player that can capture anyone’s attention — especially kids. McCutchen won the Roberto Clemente Award in 2015 for his outstanding charity work, but his giving doesn’t stop at what people can see.



Don't anoint the Giants winners in the McCutchen trade just yet

It's almost like the San Francisco Giants wanted to keep their second biggest player acquisition of the off-season a secret. McCutchen, a significant force in the game until 2015, comes to a huge outfield that sits on power hitters, but he is also coming from a bit of a bounceback season in which all his various WARs, OPS+ and traditional offensive metrics all rose as his defensive range diminished (well, he is 31).

Lowdown: A Lump For Cole

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 02:20:00 GMT

When reports came out Wednesday morning that a trade involving Gerrit Cole moving from the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Houston Astros was “imminent,” the questions began as to what big-name prospects Houston was going to give up to procure his services. Surely the Astros couldn’t get Forrest Whitley and Kyle Tucker, but would one of them be involved? If not, which of the other big names in the system were going to Pittsburgh?

The San Francisco Giants agreed to acquire 2013 National League MVP Andrew McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to multiple reports Monday. It was not immediately clear what the Pirates will receive in return for McCutchen, who is due $14.75 million in the final year of his contract.

The Pittsburgh Pirates dealt right-hander Gerrit Cole to the Houston Astros on Saturday, signaling that they are, in fact, ready to take a step back and trade their best players for prospects. Thus far, the teams have appeared to find little traction in talks.



Sources: Pirates play for another day, trade Andrew McCutchen to Giants

There is simplicity in a mid-January trade like Monday’s, in which the San Francisco Giants acquired outfielder Andrew McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates. For McCutchen, they will receive Kyle Crick, a 25-year-old right-handed pitcher with a 3.06 ERA in 32 1/3 innings as a rookie in 2017, and Bryan Reynolds, a switch-hitting outfield prospect drafted 59th overall in 2016. Following three seasons that reached (and ended quickly, granted) in October, the Pirates missed the playoffs in consecutive years, veered from 98 wins to 78 to 75, dealt ace Gerrit Cole to the Houston Astros on Saturday and two days later offloaded their franchise player, as well.



Bucs make "emotionally challenging" call to trade McCutchen

Andrew McCutchen didn't run from the challenge in Pittsburgh, he embraced it. A rising star on a franchise mired in two decades of losing, McCutchen bet on the Pirates in the spring of 2012 by signing a six-year contract, gambling that he could become one of the game's best while helping the city reconnect with a team it had long since abandoned. Everything McCutchen and owner Bob Nutting talked about on that sun-dappled Florida day six years ago came to fruition.
