Could this work?
It’s just a pitch, but MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand brings up an interesting trade the New York Yankees could consider this offseason. He suggests that the Yankees could make a deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates to get outfielder Bryan Reynolds and right-hander David Bednar in exchange for No. 2 prospect Jasson Domínguez, right-hander Clayton Beeter, right-hander Drew Thorpe and outfielder Elijah Dunham.
Reynolds is under team control until 2025 but had requested a trade from the Pirates. The New York Post’s Jon Heyman reported last week that “One rival exec calls Pittsburgh’s asking price for Bryan Reynolds ‘ridiculous.’ My suspicion: They don’t want to trade him.”
The Yankees are in search of a left fielder after Andrew Benintendi signed a five-year, $75 million contract with the Chicago White Sox. Reynolds, 27, hit a career-high 27 home runs in 2022. And adding him to the outfield with Aaron Judge and Harrison Bader would make some lockdown defense.

Bednar was an All-Star selection this year and posted a 2.61 ERA across 51 2/3 innings pitched. The reliever recorded 19 saves.
