If you were hoping the Giants and free agent outfielder Andrew McCutchen would reunite, you're out of luck.
The free agent outfielder is headed back to the state of Pennsylvania, as he has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $50 million contract.

Now, after seeing those numbers, you're probably glad the Giants didn't re-sign McCutchen.
According to Yahoo's Jeff Passan, McCutchen was looking for a five-year deal this offseason. That he got a three-year deal shows that five years wasn't going to happen.
In 155 games between the Giants and Yankees this past season, McCutchen hit .255/.368/.424 with 30 doubles, 20 home runs and 65 RBI.
The Giants' offense was so bad in 2018, that despite not playing the final month of the season with the team, McCutchen finished tied for the team lead with 28 doubles and led the team with 55 RBI. He also finished one home run behind Evan Longoria's team-leading 16.
