Andrew McCutchen is officially headed to the Bronx.

While everyone was sleeping, the Yankees agreed to a trade with the San Francisco Giants to acquire McCutchen.

In return, the Giants will receive two prospects from the Yankees, including Triple-A shortstop Abiatal Avelino, according to the New York Post.

Full details will come out soon, but with the report that the deal has been finalized and is simply a formality to be announced, it looks like the New York Yankees have added arguably the top available bat in the waiver trade market to open the final day of the deadline!

McCutchen, the 2013 National League MVP, is a free agent at the end of the season. Aaron Judge's recovery from a broken wrist has been slow, and the team made a decision to bring in some outfield help. That means he has roughly $2 million left on his deal this season. He spent the first nine years of his major league career with the Pirates, rebuilding his value with a 2017 campaign that saw him hit.279 with 28 home runs and 88 RBIs.

After a 6-year run from 2010-2015 when McCutchen hit.299/.391/.499 and averaged 23 home runs and 22 stolen bases, he slipped off big in 2016, with a.256/.336/.430 line.

McCutchen, 31, would help a Yankees outfield that's been without slugger Aaron Judge since July 26, when he was hit by a pitch that fractured his right wrist.

The Giants acquired McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates over the winter in hopes that he'd lead them back to the postseason. However, he's still battling with the injury, prompting NY to make a move.
