How Andrew McCutchen Deal Could Impact Bryan Reynolds (+)

Andrew McCutchen

Nearly five years ago today, the Pittsburgh Pirates made the unpopular move of trading the team’s face of the franchise in Andrew McCutchen to the San Francisco Giants.

In return, the Bucs acquired reliever Kyle Crick, some international bonus slot money and an outfield prospect by the name of Bryan Reynolds.

Half a decade later, after agreeing to a one-year deal, $5-million deal for the 2023 season with the 2013 N.L. MVP, both McCutchen and Reynolds will both be wearing a Pirates’ uniform at the same time — or will they?

It’s well known at this point that Reynolds requested to be traded by the Pirates earlier in the offseason.

A request the Pirates have been understandably hesitant to honor unless a team meets their high demands.
