Andrew McCutchen to play right field following trade to Giants

San Francisco Giants outfielder Andrew McCutchen will play right field after being traded from the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.

What It Means:

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea, manager Bruce Bochy announced his decision. Hunter Pence will move to left field with Gorkys Hernandez the candidate to start in center. The team's also looking at free agents Jarrod Dyson and Lorenzo Cain to possibly fill that spot.

In 9 years with the Pirates, McCutchen played the majority of his games in center. He did, however, slide to right field 13 times in 2017.
