Yankees get Andrew McCutchen from Giants for 2 prospects

Andrew McCutchen

With Judge's status up in the air, the Yankees reportedly are doing everything they can to bolster their outfield before September 1.

The Yankees are reportedly working to try to finalize a deal for Andrew McCutchen.

McCutchen will be a free agent after the season.

The Giants officially announced the trade of outfielder Andrew McCutchen to the New York Yankees on Friday morning.

The Fort Meade, Fla., native played his first nine Major League seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates (2009-17), making five NL All-Star Teams (2011-15) and winning the 2013 National League Most Valuable Player Award and 2015 Roberto Clemente Award. McCutchen will likely slide into right field to cover for Aaron Judge, who remains on the shelf with a fractured wrist.

That can only be done by Congress or the Supreme Court, should it rule the law unconstitutional, which it has not. The provision bars religious institutions and other tax-exempt organizations from endorsing political candidates.

McCutchen is not yet with the Yankees - he traveled from San Francisco to NY on Friday and is expected to be in Saturday's lineup - but he did get a head start on conforming to team rules. The 31-year-old McCutchen has averaged 155 games per season over the past eight years, with no fewer than 146 in any one season, and even his diminished offensive production would represent a short-term upgrade as the Yankees try to hold on to their lead in the wild card race.

Avelino, the 23rd-ranked prospect in the Yankees organization, according to MLB.com, is hitting.287 with 15 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

McCutchen is in his first year in San Francisco, but the last year of a long-term extension he signed as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates, who originally drafted McCutchen out of Florida high school in 2005 with the 11th overall selection.

De Paula, 20, went 2-2 with a 1.71 ERA (47.1IP, 9ER) and 46K in 10 games (nine starts) with short-season Single-A Staten Island this season.
