Is Pirates All-Star outfielder Bryan Reynolds available for trade? That’s the big question right now surrounding the MLB offseason.
Reynolds has been one of the best and most underrated outfielders in the game over the last few seasons, and is entering his final year under team control in 2023. He and the Pirates have begun talking about a potential extension, but it doesn’t sound like they’re anywhere near the ballpark in terms of how much he hopes to make next season. The Pirates initially said they weren’t going to fulfill his request, but more recently, Ken Rosenthal reported that the Pirates would listen, because it doesn’t hurt to take in offers.
Our Doug McKain broke down all the rumors surrounding Reynolds, and gave his thoughts on a potential deal with the Dodgers, and what it would take to get him:
Reynolds would be close to a perfect fit in the Dodgers’ outfield, and we know Andrew Friedman likes to make trades. The Dodgers would also not be shy in offering him the type of contract extension he’s looking for, so he would be very happy to end up in LA.
He would by no means be cheap, but considering how little the Dodgers have done this offseason, they shouldn’t be shy in spending a little money for a contract extension with a 27-year-old switch-hitting All-Star outfielder who continues to improve his game. Friedman should get on the phone as soon as possible and see which prospects it’ll take to get a deal done. This would be the kind of move to turn a quiet offseason into a great one very quickly.
