Bryan Reynolds News
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds has been drawing interest from multiple teams on the trade market, including the New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners, according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. The interest makes sense given the way he bounced back after a miserable 2020 season, slashing .302/.390/.522 with 24 HRs, 90 RBI, 93 runs scored, and five stolen bases during 159 games. Both clubs have open spots in the outfield, as the Yankees could let Brett Gardner walk after hitting the free agent market, and the Mariners project to start Jake Fraley in left field. However, the Pirates aren't in a rush to move the 26-year old, as he won't be a free agent until after 2025. Reynolds is a great batting average contributor and has 20+ home run potential, but he's in a weak Pirates lineup and won't steal many bases, hurting his value a bit.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds will get the day off Sunday as the Pirates face starting pitcher Sandy Alcantara and the Miami Marlins. The Pirates will instead deploy Anthony Alford, Ben Gamel, and Cole Tucker across the outfield. Reynolds has been outstanding this season, slashing .297/.385/.511 with 23 homers and five steals in 519 at-bats. He is a contributor across all fantasy categories, and managers can expect him to be back in the lineup on Monday against Cincinnati.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds went 2-for-3 with a home run, two walks, three RBI and two runs scored in a 10-7 win over the Nationals on Saturday. He launched his 23rd homer of the year in the victory, as he's now slashing .300/.384/.516 with five steals, 84 RBI and 80 runs scored in 139 games. He's become the top fantasy option in Pittsburgh this year, and should finish out the rest of this season on a high note.
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds looked like an appealing option as a high-floor hitter in an uncertain 2020 season. Instead, he proved to be a massive flop and will need to quickly turn the page if he wants to stay in the team's plans. Reynolds went from posting a .300 xBA that was among the best in the majors in 2019 to a .228 xBA in 2020. that resulted in a drop of 125 points in batting average, down to a miserable .189 last season. He provided modest pop with seven home runs and didn't see a huge drop in his hard-hit numbers but it goes without saying he had little fantasy value in terms of runs or RBI with 24 and 19 respectively.Aside from the question of whether he can come close to approaching his rookie numbers, there is a great deal of risk with Reynolds based on team context. The Pirates were already dead last in runs scored and third-lowest in team batting average in 2020. Now, they've traded their best hitter in Josh Bell and their top two pitchers in Joe Musgrove and Jameson Taillon. This is a never-ending rebuild that is somehow taking a step backward. The best fantasy managers can hope for is a boost in batting average, betting on a big rebound. He isn't much more than a late-round flier at his 278 ADP, so it won't cost much to use him as bench depth.
