Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Bryan Reynolds requested a trade from the franchise in December after contract discussions had not gone as planned.

The Pirates offered Reynolds a six-year, $80 million extension in November, which would have made him the highest-paid player in team history by total dollar figure.

Reynolds countered with an eight-year, $134 million request, according to The Athletic's Rob Biertempfel. When the Pirates failed to move off their $80 million offer, the outfielder requested a trade.

While Reynolds has reported to spring training, he told reporters earlier this month that although his trade request still stands, his "No. 1 choice would be to sign an extension in Pittsburgh."
