Pirate broadcaster Greg Brown sheds light on Bryan Reynolds report on fire (video)
The Pittsburgh Pirates broadcast shared their thoughts on a trade report on outfielder Bryan Reynolds.
The MLB trade deadline is August 2, and with it just days away, fans are getting a better idea of who’s being pushed back or who’s staying. Two big names were already on the way: Outfielder Andrew Benintendi joined the New York Yankees and starting pitcher Luis Castillo joined the Seattle Mariners. When it comes to them Pittsburgh Pirates Outfielder Bryan Reynolds, he’s probably not going anywhere.
Jon Heyman of the New York Post tweeted that rival executives who have contacted the Pirates about Reynolds believe he will not be traded.
The pirate broadcast team read Heyman’s tweet word for word and, well, they shredded it. Hear for yourself in the tweet below.
The pirate broadcast team guts Bryan Reynolds’ trade report
That the Pirates aren’t trading Reynolds makes sense considering he’s one of the best players on the team. In 86 games, Reynolds is posting .251/.331/.448 while recording 15 home runs, 32 RBI, 40 runs made and 79 hits.
Reynolds is in the first season of his two-year, $13.5 million contract with the Pirates. Despite this, he still has two years of arbitration left and will not become an unrestricted free agent until after the 2025 season.
On July 31, the Pirates are bottom of the NL Central Division, 40-62, after losing 8-2 to the Phillies.
Teams needing an outfielder might have to look anywhere but Pittsburgh as Reynolds is unlikely to be moved by the Pirates.
