Bryan Reynolds is an unlikely target for the Yankees

Bryan Reynolds was one of the best players in baseball in 2021. He played under the shadow of a 101-loss Pittsburgh team, but it was clear that he’s elevated his game even beyond his breakout rookie campaign two years ago. Reynolds was never the top prospect like Wander Franco — he went to the Pirates in the 2018 Andrew McCutchen deal, when he was well past his prime.

Reynolds was an A-ball player then, but his star has risen quickly in the league. He was in the running for the NL Rookie of the Year award in 2019, and in just a couple of years he has now produced results similar to superstars across MLB.
