                Pittsburgh Pirates star outfielder Bryan Reynolds has signed an 8-year $106.75m contract extension. Pittsburgh has been wildly outperforming expectations so far this season and sit with a record of 18-8. The Pirates recently lost young up and coming star shortstop Oneil Cruz to an ankle injury for what looks like the full 2023 season.

               Resigning Reynolds is a huge statement from the Pirates that they will no longer be a cheap bottom-feeder as they have been in years past. Even regarding Bryan Reynolds' contract extension there has been much discourse about Pittsburgh being willing to pay Reynolds what he deserves.

                Bryan Reynolds has been one of the MLB's premier hitters so far in his career with the Pirates. He has a .282 career batting average as well as 258 RBI and 79 HRs in just over 500 games. Despite this great production the contract extension has been a rocky road with Reynolds requesting a trade in the offseason. Thankfully for Pittsburgh both parties finally came to an agreement.

                Reynolds is signed until 2030 and has a club option for the 2031 season with an average annual value of $13,343,750.
