The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal first reported that McCutchen is being sent to the San Francisco Giants. He eventually had a big second half and eventually brought his season stats to a.279/.363/.486 slash with 28 home runs in 156 games.
The San Francisco Giants have acquired Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates in exchange for Kyle Crick and other unknown players. Any three would do the trick and would be cheap for a two or three year contract.
McCutchen, 31, was drafted 11th overall by the Pirates in 2005 and was the franchise linchpin they envisioned for the majority of his Pittsburgh career, getting selected to five straight All-Star Games from 2011 to 2015.
McCutchen has played mainly centerfield for the pirates but the Giants will likely change that as his advanced numbers in center don't really check out. And now comes the hard part for a franchise whose two decade-long dry spell had been turned by the likes of McCutchen and Cole - discovering the next McCutchen and Cole. When the Pirates pulled the trigger on Cole, there'd be no more feigning designs on 2018 competency, a fact that surely wasn't lost on the Giants. He was a full package guy playing on several postseason teams.
Neal Huntington and his staff will save $14.5 million from McCutchen's contract, barring what they get in return.

Britain refuses Ecuador's request to grant Julian Assange diplomatic status

The price for free agent corner outfielders was likely too high and so was the price for Lorenzo Cain.
The 22-year-old is the 17th-best prospect in baseball according to MLB.com and will become one of the faces of the new era of Pirates baseball.
The bottom line is that even if they're on the back end of 30, McCutchen (and Longoria) immediately make the Giants' lineup better in 2018.
The Giants have filled a big void with a big name.
