Pittsburgh Pirates Discussing Big Trade With Several Teams

The Pittsburgh Pirates have come to realize that outfielder Bryan Reynolds is a hot commodity. His name has been coming up on everyone's trade boards as the Pirates keep receiving calls about the asking price.

The Pirates are going to take a patient approach with any deal and have told teams they are going to scan the market for a little while and not make any snap decisions on a deal. Jon Morosi of MLB Network was the first to report the news.

Reynolds is only 26 and is under team control for the next four seasons. He's projected to make roughly $4.5 million in 2022 after a season in 2021 which saw him put up some great numbers. Reynolds recorded 24 HR, 90 RBI and hit an MLB best eight triples. 

The price tag for the All-Star is going to be a hefty one and any team acquiring Reynolds can expect to pay with a couple of top prospects. Two teams who are reportedly very much involved here include the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees. 

Keep an eye on the Pirates. They appear to have one of the most coveted players in the league and will be doing what they can to maximize the return in any trade.
