The Pirates commented on the situation through a team spokesperson, Mackey reports.

“While it is disappointing, this will have zero impact on our decision-making this off-season or in the future. Our goal is to improve the Pirates for 2023 and beyond. With three years until he hits free agency, Bryan remains a key member of our team. We look forward to him having a great season for the Pirates,” the spokesperson said.

Contract extension negotiations between Reynolds and the Pirates have hit an “impasse,” causing the 27-year-old to request the trade, according to the New York Post’s John Heyman.

Reynolds is set to earn $6.75 million this season in the second year of a two-year, $13 million arbitration extension. He’ll then be under club control for a further two seasons via arbitration before becoming eligible for free agency after the 2025 season.

The 2021 all-star recorded a .262 batting average with 27 home runs and 62 RBI in his 145 appearances during the 2022 season.
