The Pittsburgh Pirates reportedly have agreed to send star outfielder Andrew McCutchen to the San Francisco Giants, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

After nabbing Evan Longoria from the Rays in December, the Giants seem intent on building the best team of 2013 with the deal for McCutchen - pending a physical.

The trade has not been officially announced by either team, and it is unclear what Pittsburgh will receive in exchange for the five-time All-Star. No player was more synonymous with the Pirates' turnaround a few years ago than McCutchen.

Republican senator insists Trump didn't disparage Haiti, African nations with profane remark
The presidents demands come as he already has put the country on track to remove 1 million immigrants over the next two years. Democratic Party of Georgia Chairman DuBose Porter was among the state Democrats who urged Perdue to condemn the remarks.

After nine fabulous seasons in Pittsburgh that saw McCutchen become a five-time All-Star, a four-time Silver Slugger Award victor, a Gold Glove victor in 2012, and National League MVP in 2013, his tenure in Pittsburgh has come to an end.

The Pirates, who have already sold off Gerrit Cole to the Astros, seem to be looking at major sell mode.

McCutchen was one of several Pirates players who figured to be on the move in the wake of the Cole trade. He is set to be a free agent after the 2018 season.

Last season, San Francisco tumbled down the standings as they struggled at the plate. McCutchen bounced back last season after his lackluster 2016 campaign, hitting.279/.363/.486 with 28 homers and 11 stolen bases across 156 games.

The San Francisco Giants have acquired an upgrade in the outfield. McCutchen will make $14.5 million in 2018, allowing the Giants to reset their tax penalties. Of course, the Giants need all the help they can get after just enduring a 64-98 season.
