Pirates trade outfielder Andrew McCutchen to Giants

The Pittsburgh Pirates have made their second significant trade of the past 72 hours, as Pittsburgh has reportedly dealt 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen to the San Francisco Giants.

McCutchen spent nine seasons in Pittsburgh and compiled a .291/.379/.487 career slash line with the Pirates. In addition to the 2013 MVP, he was named to the NL All-Star team five times.

Pittsburgh appears to be set to undergo a rebuild as they dealt starting pitcher Gerrit Cole to the Houston Astros on Saturday afternoon.

San Francisco, meanwhile, has had a busy offseason. They acquired Evan Longoria in December and remain active on the free agent market as they look to rebound from a dreadful 2017 in which they won just 64 games, their fewest wins in a season since 1985.
