Phillies, outfielder Andrew McCutchen agree to deal

Phillies, outfielder Andrew McCutchen agree to deal

McCutchen, a five-time All-Star, began last season with the Giants before being traded to the Yankees in the final hours of the waiver-trade deadline in August. 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.

- The Blue Jays have released oft-injured shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (too-loh-IHTS'-kee) with two years and $38 million remaining on his contract.

Whew! See why Mariners fans might understandably be a little apprehensive about the transformation, even after an 89-73 season that failed to end a almost two-decade playoff drought - they were third in the AL West and missed the playoffs for a 17th straight season. The 32-year-old batted.255 last season with 20 home runs, 65 RBIs and 14 stolen bases. The deal includes a team option for the 2022 season.

The Phillies announced Wednesday they have signed outfielder Andrew McCutchen to a three-year deal. Twice in his last four years, his OPS has dipped below.800 only to soar back over that threshold the following season.

McCutchen spent the majority of his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, which included ending a almost two-decade long postseason drought in 2013, before being traded to San Francisco for right-hander Kyle Crick, minor league outfielder Bryan Reynolds and cash prior to the 2018 season.

She was taken to a hospital, where she died, according to the Post . Anne-Marie Green and Vladimir Duthiers have more. She was revived, DHS said , but did not recover.

He was the No. 11 overall pick in 2005 and is a career.287 hitter with 223 home runs and 790 RBIs.

The Phillies have always been seen as a frontrunner for Harper this winter given the "stupid" amount of money they have available and ready to spend over the offseason.

Rhys Hoskins is moving from left field to first base after the team traded Carlos Santana to Seattle for infielder Jean Segura last week. Tulowitzki has not played in the major leagues since July 2017.

However, when taking into consideration that McCutchen is a five-time All Star and a former MVP, Tuesday's news that he will be joining Philadelphia should have fans beyond excited. The White Sox acquired righthander Ivan Nova from the Pirates for minor league pitcher Yordi Rosario and $500,000 in global signing bonus pool allocation. Nova, 31, was 9-9 with a 4.19 ERA in 29 starts this season, striking out 114 in 161 innings.

Harper - who has spent all seven of his Major League Baseball seasons with the Washington Nationals - is a free agent.
