Andrew McCutchen Heading to Philadelphia Phillies

Andrew McCutchen

The veteran hit for a.253 average with five homers in 25 games for the Yankees after joining the team on August 31. They are widely expected to emerge from this winter with either Machado or Harper, though neither player appears close to signing a deal during this week's Winter Meetings at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

Not to mention, when seeing how McCutchen has recorded at least 20 home runs for eight seasons in a row along with the fact that his speed makes him a serious threat each time on base, what's not to like about this McCutchen deal? Pittsburgh ended a two-decade postseason drought in 2013 and made three straight playoff appearances before falling to 78-83 in 2016 and 75-87 a year ago. McCutchen spent most of the season with the Giants before being traded to the New York Yankees.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the agreement, which includes a club option for 2022, is subject to a successful physical.

Matt Gelb of The Athletic reported on Tuesday that McCutchen has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Pope removes two cardinals hit by scandal from group of close advisers
The Vatican released a statement addressing the decision to omit these three figures from the C9. Both demoted cardinals were absent from the last meeting of the group in September.

The Cubs were never directly linked to the 32-year-old outfielder, but McCutchen is known as a clubhouse leader and a seasoned veteran - something Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer hope to add to their young core of position players for 2019.

McCutchen, 32, is a five-time All-Star wo boasts a career.287 batting average with 223 home runs and 185 stolen bases. With Rhys Hoskins moving to first base after the trade that sent Carlos Santana to Seattle, the Phillies opened some space in their outfield. Tulowitzki has not played in the major leagues since July 2017. The Athletics and catcher Chris Herrmann agreed on a $1 million, one-year contract. It also reduces the chances that Bryce Harper will go to Philadelphia, but it doesn't take the Phillies entirely out of the sweepstakes for the OF.

- The White Sox have acquired right-handed Ivan Nova from the Pirates for minor league pitcher Yordi Rosario and $500,000 in worldwide signing bonus pool allocation. He is 78-64 with a 4.26 ERA in nine seasons with the New York Yankees (2010-16) and Pirates (2016-18). With free agents Michael Brantley and A.J. Pollock still on the market, their value becomes a tad bit clearer with this move.
