In view of all the prestigious awards he has bagged, it isn’t out of place for one to expect that Andrew has landed some of the most lucrative contracts as a professional baseball player. Let’s look at the figures involved and also meet his wife.

Details of Andrew Mccutchen’s Notable Contracts

Mccutchen has operated at the upper echelons of baseball, commanding juicy contracts with some of the top teams. He has represented the Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees, and most recently, the Philadelphia Phillies.

He opted out of a commitment to the University of Florida to join the Pittsburgh Pirates after the team selected him 11th overall in the 2005 MLB draft. In 2006, his first full season as a professional in the minors, he was named the Minor League Player of the Year. As part of the package to bring him to Pittsburgh, he was offered a $1.9 million signing bonus.

Andrew Mccutchen made his major league debut against the New York Mets on September 4, 2009. In that game, he played center field and was the first batter. Andrew ended the game with two singles and one RBI. He also scored three runs and recorded one stolen base. In 2012, Mccutchen put pen to paper on a six-year $51.5 million contract. The deal was signed on March 5, 2012. Throughout his glittering eight-year career with the Pirates, he held the record for the most appearances (676) and also the most home runs at 92.

His Pact with the Giants, Yankees, and Phillies

Andrew was traded to the San Francisco Giants on January 15, 2018, in exchange for two of the Giants players and $500,000 in international bonus slot money. He started with the Giants by making six hits in a single game for the first time in his career. This was on April 7, 2018; against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In August, Mccutchen moved to New York Yankees in a deal that handed him $65.25 million for seven years. But then, he didn’t stick around to see out his deal as he was soon off to  Philadelphia Phillies where he was signed to a bumper three-year deal worth a staggering $50 million. The contract signed on the 12th of December 2018 had a $15 million club option and a $3 million buyout for 2022.

Mccutchen was earning an average salary of over $8 million during his time with the Pittsburgh Pirates. As a right fielder for San Francisco Giants, he earned an adjusted average salary of over $12 million. Andrew earns over $14 million as of this writing and it is believed that he’s worth $30 million.

Who Is The Wife of Andrew Mccutchen?

Andrew Mccutchen comes from a very conservative Christian family. As such, it’s no surprise to many that he has courted minimal controversy despite his fame and fortune. There have been no rumors of indiscretions with the ladies. In fact, he is known to have just one woman in his life.

Mccutchen met Maria Hanslovan while she was working with the Cannonball Crew, a group that entertained fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates at their home games. This was at the time Andrew played for the Pirates. They began dating in 2009; four years later while on Ellen DeGeneres Show on December 11, 2013, Mccutchen who was a guest on the show invited his then-fiancee (who was in the audience) to the stage and popped the question.

They got married on the 22nd of November 2014 at St. Pauls Cathedral Pittsburgh. The date “22” was chosen because of his fondness for the number 22 which was his jersey number at the Pirates. They welcomed their first child, Steel Stefan Mccutchen on November 27, 2017. On the 25th of December 2019, the couple had their second child; a boy named Armani X McCutchen.
