Where do things stand for the Giants when it comes to the Giancarlo Stanton sweepstakes?
Well, there was this update on Wednesday morning:
Source: #SFGiants have remained in contact with #Pirates on Andrew McCutchen, who is among options they could pursue if they do not acquire Giancarlo Stanton from #Marlins. @MLB @MLBNetwork— Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) November 29, 2017
In early November, the Pirates exercised their $14.5 million option on McCutchen.
After the 2018 season, he is slated to hit unrestricted free agency.
McCutchen turned 31 years old in October.
Last season, he hit .279 with 28 home runs and 88 RBI.
He was an All-Star five straight seasons from 2011 to 2015, and was named National League MVP in 2013.
