The New York Yankees will add a right-handed bat to their roster, as they agreed to a deal with free agent slugger Mark Reynolds.
General manager Brian Cashman confirmed the agreement Thursday night, ESPN.com reported.
Reynolds was released by Cleveland Indians on Monday after batting .215 with 15 home runs and 48 RBIs this season. He was designated for assignment by Cleveland on Aug. 8.
The 30-year-old picked the Yankees over three other interested teams, according to CBSSports.com. The Yankees are expected to use Reynolds at third and first base when Alex Rodriguez and Lyle Overbay are not in the lineup.
The power-hitting corner infielder's career stops have included the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Baltimore Orioles. He hit 44 home runs for the Diamondbacks in 2008 and 37 for the Orioles in 2011.
