Multiple contenders reportedly interested in Andrew McCutchen

By , Audacy Sports

Even after a relatively underwhelming campaign with the Milwaukee Brewers, former National League MVP Andrew McCutchen is reportedly drawing interest from multiple contending teams.

According to ESPN's Buster Olney, both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays "have interest" in McCutchen.

McCutchen slashed .237/.316/.384 with 17 home runs, 69 RBIs and 57 walks after signing a one-year/$8.5 million deal to join the Milwaukee Brewers.

Perhaps the Brewers -- a team that was a big bat or two away from being a World Series contender -- miscast McCutchen at this stage of his career. But if the five-time All-Star joined a team where he could get at-bats at DH and in left field primarily against left-handed pitching, he definitely could still provide some value.

McCutchen has slashed .277/.369/.469 with 1,948 hits, 287 home runs, 1,002 RBIs and 50.8 WAR during a 14-year career that's also seen him play with the Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies.

Now 36, McCutchen has never been on a team that's reached the LCS round of the postseason. Given that he's accomplished just about every other thing in his career, one would think that the four-time Silver Slugger Award would prioritize joining a World Series contender this winter. Both the Dodgers and Rays could fit that bill.
