Report: Former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen set to join Brewers


Former NL MVP Andrew McCutchen has agreed a deal to join the Milwaukee Brewers, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.

McCutchen, 35, became a star during his eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, where he earned five consecutive trips to the MLB All-Star Game between 2011 and 2015. He earned NL MVP honors in 2013 when he hit .317 with 21 home runs and 84 RBIs.

In January 2018, McCutchen was traded to the San Francisco Giants, and seven months later he was traded again to the New York Yankees. He played just 25 games with the Yankees and joined the Philadelphia Phillies as a free agent in December.

During the 2021 season, McCutchen hit .222 with 27 home runs and 80 RBIs.

Milwaukee won NL Central last season with a 95-67 record, but lost an NL Division series to the Atlanta Braves in four games. The Brewers collectively batted .233 in the 2021 season, fourth-worst in MLB.
