The Pittsburgh Pirates’ all-time high is not enough to catch All-Star outfielder Brian Reynolds (28).
The US’Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’ reported on the 4th (Korean time) that the Pirates offered Reynolds more money than Ki Brian Hays, but about $50 million less than the player wanted.
Pittsburgh signed an eight-year, $70 million contract with third baseman Hayes ahead of the start of the season in April of last year. Pittsburgh 메이저놀이터 club’s highest-ever condition. However, Reynolds is hoping for $50 million more in terms of contract than Hayes. He’s looking for a big contract worth $120 million or more.
Reynolds’ mind seems to have left Pittsburgh. Reynolds, who had been rumored to be traded for the past few years, asked the club for a trade last month. Pittsburgh did not accept Reynolds’ request, saying, “It’s disappointing, but I will remain a key member of our team for three years until I become a free agent.”
However, he is a very popular player in the market, and there are trade inquiries from various teams. As there is a marked difference in position in the negotiations for the extension contract, the prospect that the Reynolds trade will eventually be made is prevailing, although it is not known when.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said, ‘Reynolds will be traded before the end of the 2023 season. “It makes sense to trade,” he said. “More than 10 teams have expressed interest in Reynolds in the past two years.” As Pittsburgh is rebuilding, he emphasized that it is natural to trade when Reynolds’ market value is high.
