Bryan Reynolds Signs Largest Contract In Pirates History

 The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed outfielder Bryan Reynolds to an eight-year, $106.75 million contract extension. The contract includes a club option in 2031. 

Prior to this deal, the Pirates were 1 of 4 MLB teams to never sign a player to a contract worth over $100 million. Now only the White Sox, Athletics, and Royals are the remaining teams to never sign a player for over $100 million.

Reynolds, 28, is coming off an All-Star season in which he hit .309 with 24 home runs, 90 RBIs, and 20 stolen bases. He finished second in the National League MVP voting in the 2022 season. 

The contract comes at a bit of a surprise due to Bryan Reynolds requesting a trade in the off-season. Big-spending teams like the New York Yankees had an interest and trading for the All-Star outfielder.
