MLB news: Phillies sign McCutchen

From the New York Post

              The Philadelphia Phillies have signed OF Andrew McCutchen to a three year, $50 million deal.

               After trading Carlos Santana to the Mariners, LF Rhys Hoskins will move back to first base, opening a spot for left field. It was seen that the Phillies would sign either McCutchen or Michael Brantley, and they chose McCutchen. The former MVP is now a shell of his former self, but he still makes solid money here.

               McCutchen, 32, had a .255 batting average, 20 home runs, 65 RBIs and 14 stolen bases in 682 Plate Appearances for the New York Yankees and San Fransisco Giants in 2018. The best year of his career was in 2012 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, when he had a .327 batting average, 31 home runs, 96 RBIs and 20 stolen bases. In his MLB career for the Yankees, Giants and Pirates, McCutchen has a .287 batting average, with 223 home runs, 790 RBIs and 185 stolen bases in 6511 Plate Appearances.
