Last season, McCutchen, 31, played in 156 games for Pittsburgh, hitting with a .279 average , with 28 home runs and 88 runs batted in. The nine-year MLB veteran is also known to posses above average speed and defense.
This trade comes very soon after the Pirates agreed to send very talented starter, Gerrit Cole, to the Houston Astros.
The Giants on the other hand, appear to be attempting a come back season after losing 98 games last year, and winning only 64. After making a strong push to acquire Giancarlo Stanton from the Miami Marlins earlier this offseason, San Francisco has acquired infielder Evan Longoria from the Tampa Bay Rays, and is reportedly still in on free-agent outfielder Lorenzo Cain.
