Andrew McCutchen has been told that he'll play a corner outfield spot with the Giants this season, per Buster Olney of ESPN.

That was the expectation following the trade and it's now confirmed. Advanced metrics haven't been kind to McCutchen in recent years, so it would be a lot to ask him to play center field in AT&T Park. The Giants have Gorkys Hernandez and Steven Duggar in-house for center field, but the club continues to be linked to Lorenzo Cain, Jarrod Dyson, Jon Jay, and Cameron Maybin in the free agent market. It might not be the big splash with Cain, but it's reasonable to expect them to sign one of them.

In a statement released to The Athletic on Tuesday, Pirates infielder Josh Harrison said that he'd prefer to be traded if the Pirates don't expect to contend in 2018 or 2019.

Harrison sees which way the wind is blowing after the recent trades of Gerrit Cole and Andrew McCutchen. "If indeed the team does not expect to contend this year or next, perhaps it would be better for all involved, that I also am traded," Harrison said in part of the statement. "I want what is best for the organization that gave me a chance to be a Big Leaguer." The versatile 30-year-old is owed $10 million in 2018, with a $10.5 million club option (or $1 million buyout) for 2019 and an $11.5 million club option (or $500,000 buyout) for 2020. Rosenthal writes that the Mets, Yankees, and Brewers are among the teams with reported interest in Harrison. If the Pirates don't feel they are getting fair value, they could easily hold and wait until the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.

Rangers signed RHP Deolis Guerra to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Guerra appeared in 19 games with the Angels last season while posting a 4.68 ERA and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 25 innings. Best known for being a part of the Johan Santana trade between the Twins and Mets, Guerra owns a 4.17 ERA over 73 relief appearances in the majors. He'll turn 29 in April.

Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler indicated during an appearance on The Mighty 1090 that the club isn't planning to make significant changes to their offer to free agent first baseman Eric Hosmer.

It was reported earlier this month that the club made a seven-year offer to Homser valued at less than $140 million. They appear to be holding firm for now. "I think we were pretty creative in the way we put a contract proposal together," said Fowler. "We like it. I don’t know if Mr. Boras likes it, but that’s probably another story." The Royals are likely the Padres' primary competition for Hosmer's services, though the Cardinals have also been mentioned as a possibility. Scott Boras is known for being patient with these situations, but something will have to give here soon.

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Giants have Jarrod Dyson as their top non-Lorenzo Cain free agent option for center field.

Dyson is followed by Jon Jay and Cameron Maybin on the Giants' list. The club acquired Andrew McCutchen from the Pirates on Monday and haven't officially ruled him out for center field, but the speedy Dyson is obviously the superior defender. The 33-year-old batted .251/.324/.350 with five home runs, 30 RBI, and 28 steals over 11 games with the Mariners last season.
