Via Kevin Goldstein, the Yankees have signed utility man Burt Reynolds. Apparently he’s Robinson Cano’s cousin, and yes his name is really Burt Reynolds. The 23-year-old spent some time in the Nationals and Rays farm systems back in the day, but played for the independent Newark Bears last season. He hit .232/.291/.445 with 13 homers and 95 strikeouts in 286 plate appearances. All I know is that having a dude named Burt Reynolds in the organization is pretty badass.
Side note: Burt’s Twitter account is the greatest thing ever.
