After three seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies, Andrew McCutchen is departing in free agency to join the Milwaukee Brewers.

The news was first reported by Daniel Álvarez-Montes of El Extrabase, and confirmed by Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

McCutchen recently wrapped up a three-year/$50 million deal with the Phillies, during which he slashed .238/.343/.444 with 47 home runs, 143 RBIs, 146 walks, a .787 OPS and a 2.5 fWAR. The Phillies declined the $15 million club option on McCutchen’s contract for the 2022 season, and will instead pay him a $3 million buyout this season.

While his defensive metrics have declined, McCutchen remains a valuable offensive player, specifically against left-handed pitching. The 35-year-old slashed .293/.405/.622 with 15 home runs, 32 RBIs and a 1.027 OPS against lefties in 2021.

One of the greatest players in Pirates history, McCutchen made five All-Star teams and won the 2013 National League MVP during nine seasons in Pittsburgh. He’ll now return to the NL Central, perhaps to conclude his career.
