Burt Reynolds, Robinson Cano's cousin, was signed by the Mariners today
No, it's actually not the Longest Yard runnin', Oscar-nominated actor better known as Turd Ferguson:
But Robinson Cano's cousin does share the same name as the legendary Burt Reynolds, and on Tuesday, he was signed by the Mariners. The 25-year-old outfielder has spent the last three seasons in the Can-Am League and posted a .221/.289/.361 slash line during his time in the Minors from 2008-10. Although he'll probably play for one of Seattle's Minor League affiliates, we hope Burt Reynolds makes it the Majors very soon.
