At least three playoff-caliber teams are reportedly interested in Pirates center fielder Bryan Reynolds.
MLB Network’s John Morosi says the New York Yankees, Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Dodgers at the top three teams.
Kody Duncan of Rum Bunter relays that a deal with the Mariners looks “more promising.”
Morosi told a radio station in Seattle that Reynolds is the biggest name available in free agency.
Reynolds publically asked for a trade away from the Pirates recently. He hit .262 last season for the Pirates with 27 home runs and 62 RBI.
“So now that you take Toronto out of the conversation, you’re probably looking at the Yankees, Dodgers and Mariners as three of the strongest candidates to get Bryan Reynolds. So if you are a Mariner fan hoping and dreaming for Bryan Reynolds … then I think last week was good for you,” Morosi said on 710AM.
The Pirates haven’t expressed an interest in moving Reynolds and if he is dealt, general manager Ben Cherington will be looking for a king’s ransom.
