The Yankees have reportedly finalized a deal that would bring Andrew McCutchen to the Bronx and supply some much-needed offensive support.
Buster Olney of ESPN has reported the Yankees have indeed acquired Andrew McCutchen from the San Francisco Giants.
Joel Sherman of the New York Post originally reported the New York Yankees were working on finalizing a deal that would bring OF Andrew McCutchen to New York with prospect Abital Avelino being the main piece going back to the Bay.
This could be a huge move for the Yankees if the deal is finalized. Andrew McCutchen would bring his veteran leadership and solid bat to a lineup that has looked defeated as of late and has barely shown any effort.
Through 130 games this season, McCutchen has slashed .255/.357/.415 with 15 home runs and 55 RBIs. He would be a significant upgrade over what the Yankees are currently working with in Shane Robinson.
However, this does not seem like great news for Aaron Judge, who could be out longer than we originally thought and has forced the Yankees to go out and get a big bat to replace him.
There is no doubt that fans should be excited for Andrew McCutchen coming to the Bronx, but you have to wonder what this means for Aaron Judge’s future for this season.
