Padres trade target — Pittsburgh Pirates: Bryan Reynolds
Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds has been a popular trade target among a few different teams, including the Yankees and the Padres. With the Yankees acquiring Benintendi, the Padres seem to have an even better chance of landing Reynolds.
Reynolds would be a good upgrade to the San Diego outfield. This season, he’s hitting .254/.335/.453 for an OPS of .788. He’s comparable to the Padres best outfielder Jurickson Profar, who is hitting .242/.343/.394 for an OPS of .737.
Reynolds is currently under contract worth $13.5 million and is eligible for arbitration in 2024. He’s eligible for free agency in 2026, so he’d be guaranteed to stay in San Diego for a while.
