    Back In 2018,JAN 18 the Pirates traded former MVP Andrew McCutchen to the Giants for Bryan Reynolds and Kyle Crick.

    When the trade happened Pirates fans were in shock that they traded former MVP Andrew McCutchen for 2 prospects who were not highly ranked. After the trade McCutchen was never the same as his MVP type seasons in Pittsburgh but is still a solid player, As of now he’s on the Phillies recovering from an injury.

    Kyle Crick as soon as he came to Pittsburgh made a huge impact as he had a career year posting a 2.39 ERA as well with 65 strikeouts in 60.1 innings pitched. In 2019 though he was not the same as he posted a 4.96 ERA with a 1.55 WHIP. Overall though Kyle Crick is a above average reliver and was a good pick up for the Pirates.

    Bryan Reynolds did not make his Major League debut until 2019,APR 20. He got called up due to a injury, He wasn’t a top 100 prospect and no one expected much from him. Well he proved everyone wrong as he posted a 314 BA,503 SLG,880 OPS and a 3.9 WAR. He was also 4th in voting for NL ROY behind guys like Pete Alonso and Fernando Tatis JR.

    Its safe to say Bryan Reynolds is one of the most underrated players in the MLB and people should start giving him the respect he deserves. In all the Pirates won this trade and got a superstar type player.
