More than a week has passed since Bryan Reynolds requested a trade from the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The center fielder remains a Pirate. In talking with various people from around baseball over the past week, it looks like Reynolds may remain with the Pirates for a while.
Teams who talked to general manager Ben Cherington and the Pirates last week at the Winter Meetings in San Diego feel he really doesn’t want to trade Reynolds. In fact, those teams say Cherington seems no more inclined to deal Reynolds than before the Aug. 2 trading deadline.
“Ben was driving a hard bargain then and he’s driving a hard bargain now, and he hasn’t come off that position at all,” an executive from a National League told PittsburghBaseballNow!, granted anonymity because of the nature of the subject.
