  • The Yankees are reportedly interested in adding Bryan Reynolds
  • The Yankees may have a tough time getting Reynolds
  • New York has made some vital moves to address issues within their ranks

The New York Yankees may have secured the services of Aaron Judge, but it may not be the last one.

The Yanks could reportedly look at other options, and one of them is a possible trade for Bryan Reynolds of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

According to Jon Morosi of the MLB Network, the Yankees have allegedly contacted the Pirates to discuss a potential trade for the 2021 All-Star.

However, their chances of snagging the 27-year-old may be tough, considering that New York may not have the kind of player Pittsburgh wants.

Morosi goes on to note that the Pirates are looking for a high-quality starting pitcher, someone that Pittsburgh is reportedly looking for.

It is no secret that Reynolds wants to leave the ballclub, requesting a trade from the team last December 3, despite the fact that the Pirates had offered Reynolds a contract extension that would have made him the highest-paid player in team history.

So far, the player who owns that honor is Ke'Bryan Hayes.

Hayes signed an eight-year contract extension with the Pirates in April worth $70 million.

For now, Reynolds remains under team control for three more years and is set to hit free agency in 2025.

It would also be best to note that despite his trade request, the Pirates stressed that this will not have an impact on their plans for Reynolds.

They are looking forward to seeing him perform for them in the coming MLB season.

As for the Yankees, there are also other MLB teams reportedly scratching the surface.

Regardless, the Yanks have addressed two major hurdles in free agency.

They retained Judge, locking him into a nine-year deal worth $360 million.

Aside from Judge, they also added Carlos Rodon to the mix, signing him to a six-year deal worth $162 million.

So unless the Yankees can pull off something to get Reynolds, the Yankees will have to make do with Harrison Bader for now.
