Reyes batted .203/.274/.322 in 71 games for the Pirates last year. He debuted in September of 2018 and had an .832 OPS in 18 games. The 26-year-old Reyes was dropped from the 40-man roster and optioned to Indianapolis in early January after the Pirates signed outfielder Guillermo Heredia. He will now miss half of the 2020 season. Reyes was not invited to Spring Training this season.
