“The club’s largest ever”… ‘Market hitter’ Reynolds, PIT and 8 years 143.2 billion ‘Jackpot’

Brian Reynolds, the ‘signboard batter’ who is eating rice with Bae Ji-hwan and Choi Ji-man, signed a super-large contract extension worth 106.75 million dollars (approximately 143.2 billion won) with the Pittsburgh Pirates. I completely resolved the conflict when I requested a trade last year.

Bob Nightingale of USA Today said on the 26th (Korean time), “The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed a $106.75 million contract extension with Brian Reynolds.” The contract size is 8 years.

Reynolds, who started his professional life after being nominated by the San Francisco Giants with the 59th overall pick in the 2nd round of the 2016 rookie draft, wore a Pittsburgh uniform through a trade. And he stepped on the big league stage for the first time in the 2019 season, and in 134 games that year, he played an active role with 154 hits, 16 home runs, 68 RBIs, 83 runs, a batting average of 0.314 OPS of 0.880, and took the starting position.

In the 2020 season, which was a shortened season, Reynolds stagnated with 35 hits, 7 homers, 0.189 OPS and 0.632 batting average in 55 games, but the following year, 169 hits, 24 homers, 90 RBIs, 93 runs batting average, 0.302 OPS 0.912 in 159 games. And last year, in 145 games, he recorded 142 hits, 27 homers, 62 RBIs, 74 runs, a batting average of 0.262 OPS and 0.806, establishing himself as a ‘signboard hitter’. 스포츠토토

Reynolds and Pittsburgh had a ‘conflict’ last year. The problem is that this conflict has been revealed above the surface. That’s why Reynolds publicly requested a trade after the 2022 season ended. At the time, Pittsburgh had no choice but to trade, but no club could meet the conditions of Pittsburgh, who had high eyes.

After the trade failed, Reynolds expressed his intention to renew the contract with Pittsburgh in an interview with local media such as ‘MLB.com’ in February of this year, and finally succeeded in signing a super-large contract extension. This contract is the largest in Pittsburgh history.

According to the American multiple media, Reynolds will receive $6.75 million (about 9 billion won) in 2023, $10 million (about 13.4 billion won) in the 2024 season, $12 million (about 16.1 billion won) in the 2025 season, and $14 million (about 187 million won) in the 2026 season. 100 million won), and from the 2028 to 2030 season, he will receive an annual salary of 15 million dollars (about 20.1 billion won). And the 2031 season has a club option, and the buyout is $2 million (about 2.6 billion won), and if the option is executed, the contract size soars to $ 124.75 million (about 167.4 billion won).

Meanwhile, Reynolds is recording 25 hits, 5 home runs, 18 RBIs, a batting average of 0.294 OPS and 0.872 in 22 games this season, and he is perfectly playing the key role of Pittsburgh along with the returning ‘captain’ Andrew McCutchen.
