Pittsburgh Pirates and All-Star center fielder Bryan Reynolds avoided arbitration, agreeing to a two-year contract worth $13.5 million.

A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press that the deal runs through 2023 and will pay $6.75 million per season. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the deal was not announced. An official announcement is expected later Thursday.

Reynolds and the Pirates were set to go to arbitration after failing to reach an agreement on a one-year contract for 2022. Reynolds demanded $4.9 million, with Pittsburgh hitting back with $4.25 million.

Reynolds, 27, flourished with the Pirates after joining in the January 2018 trade that sent centre-back Andrew McCutchen to San Francisco. Reynolds reached the majors in 2019 and moved to center field in 2021, hitting .302 with 24 homers and 90 RBI while becoming an above-average defenseman.

Reynolds is batting .227 with one homer in five games so far this season for Pittsburgh. The Pirates are off to a 2-3 start going into Thursday night’s game against Washington.

The deal comes two days after Pittsburgh signed third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes to an eight-year, $70 million deal.
