The best contract in Pittsburgh Pirates history came out. The main character was Brian Reynolds (28), who demanded an open trade last year.
MLB.com said on the 26th (Korean time), “Pittsburgh has agreed to a 7-year, $100 million (134.2 billion won) extension contract with outfielder Reynolds. 143.2 billion won) contract.” It was the first time in club history to sign a contract worth more than $100 million.
Reynolds, who joined the San Francisco Giants with the 59th overall pick in the second round of the 2016 draft, grew after joining Pittsburgh through a trade. He was a prospect that Pittsburgh traded Andrew McCutchen for at the time. Reynolds, who debuted in the US Major League (MLB) in 2019, recorded a batting average of 0.314, 16 home runs and 68 RBIs in 134 games. He posted a batting average of 0.302, 24 homers and 90 RBIs in 159 games in 2021, and a batting average of 0.262, 27 homers and 62 RBIs in 145 games last year.
Reynolds requested an open trade last year when negotiations with the club for an extension were not feasible. On the other hand, the Pittsburgh club wanted a high trade price because Reynolds could be used at a relatively low annual salary for the next few years as he only obtains FA (free agent) status in 2026. In the end, the trade didn’t go through. 토토사이트
Pittsburgh and Reynolds signed mega contracts a month after opening. Reynolds is leading Pittsburgh’s National League Central Division with a batting average of 0.294 this season with 5 homers and 18 RBIs. Pittsburgh, where Choi Ji-man (32) and Bae Ji-hwan (24) belong together, previously announced an extension contract with coach Derek Shelton (53), who is leading the team’s upward trend this season.
According to local media, Reynolds will receive $10 million in 2024, $12 million in 2025, and $14 million in 2026. From 2027 to 2030, $15 million each. In 2031, it is a condition of a club option of $20 million and a buyout of $2 million.
