The Yankees front office has set no foot wrong this off-season. However, after failing to seal an extension deal with Andrew Benintendi, the Bombers have an empty hole in their left field. Hence, they need Bryan Reynolds to fill in that spot. Bryan is an all-field player and can end the left-field blues for the Yankees. Thus, the Yankees are in talks with the outfielder to make a deal. However, Bryan has set a high price tag for himself and is not likely to settle for less. As a result, the Bombers will have to empty their pockets to fit Bryan in their roaster.

Meanwhile, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported that Texas Rangers are currently leading the race to acquire Bryan Reynolds. On the other hand, Los Angeles Dodgers are another party showing interest in the outfielder. As far as the Yankees are concerned, they have less amount of funds available. But the brand name could work in their favor. Nonetheless, the young outfielder will have a tough choice to make this off-season. Also, he will have to choose a better roaster for himself in order to secure his future.
