With the San Francisco Giants in a rut, now three games under .500 and eight back in the NL West, GM Bobby Evans knows it's time to sell.
The Giants aren't willing to part with many of their valuable assets, but after acquiring Andrew McCutchen from Pittsburgh this offseason with the hopes of making a playoff push, San Francisco would be wise to see what they can get for the veteran.
Cutch can still contribute at a high level, and for some lucky team, his services could be acquired for a cheap price.
Not surprising given the way #sfgiants played in Cincinnati, but I’m hearing Andrew McCutchen has been placed on revocable waivers. Very good chance he is wearing another uniform by the end of the week.— Andrew Baggarly (@extrabaggs) August 21, 2018
Cutch should get every opportunity to play for a contender this season, especially one currently lacking outfield depth (cough: New York). McCutchen certainly lacks some of the power and flash from his younger days in Pittsburgh, but he's more than serviceable at the dish and in the field.
Blessed be Andrew McCutchen🙌🙏— SFGiant's Jeezus (@SFGiantsJeezus) August 16, 2018
Batting .257 with 14 home runs on the season, Cutch's OBP is at one of the lowest marks of his career. Perhaps a revival and some meaningful October baseball will provide a resurgence for the 31-year-old.
