After a flurry of moves on Monday, the Yankees don’t seem to be finished just yet while showing interest in Giants outfielder Andrew McCutchen.
According to Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com, the Yankees have begun to show interest in Giants outfielder Andrew McCutchen. The Indians and Phillies are also in the mix for the 31-year old.
After dealing Adam Warren and Tyler Austin on Monday, the Yankees still seem to be in the market for a bat, particularly one who could play the outfield and provide some coverage until Aaron Judge returns from his injury.
The right-hander is having an average season at the plate slashing .253/.348/.405 with 10 home runs and 43 RBIs through 103 games. He certainly has not performed at the same level as he did a few years ago, but he could thrive in a pennant race that could down to the wire in the Bronx.
New York is currently lacking depth in the outfield department, which has led to them needing to bring up Shane Robinson to gain some playing time in Judge’s absence.
As long as the asking price for McCutchen isn’t too high it seems like a move that Cashman would be interested in completing. He is a veteran player who could fill a hole in the Bronx.
