McCutchen, who will be entering his 14th season in the Major Leagues, and the Brewers agreed to a one-year contract on Wednesday. His base pay in 2022 will be $8.5 million, a source told Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
A hitter like McCutchen was given more opportunities to hit in Milwaukee thanks to the introduction of a universal designated hitter as part of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement for baseball.
McCutchen could alternate between playing as the DH and in an outfield combination that also included Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Hunter Renfroe, and Tyrone Taylor.
Last season, McCutchen started 131 games in left field for the Phillies and might replace Yelich against some left-handers.
McCutchen was one of the best all-around outfielders in the National League during his prime.
He was selected for the National League All-Star team in five straight seasons between 2011 and 2015, won four straight Silver Slugger Awards between 2012 and 2015, and finished in the top five in the voting for the NL MVP Award each of those four years, winning the award in 2013.
McCutchen has played for the Giants, Yankees, and Phillies since leaving Pittsburgh following the 2017 campaign.
