Carl Nettles Reynolds (February 1, 1903 – May 29, 1978) was an American outfielder in Major League Baseball who played for the Chicago White Sox (1927–31), Washington Senators (1932, 1936), St. Louis Browns (1933), Boston Red Sox (1934–35) and Chicago Cubs (1937–39). He was born in LaRue, Texas and attended Southwestern University. He batted and threw right-handed.

Reynolds was a consistent hitter who reached the .300 mark six times. He played all three outfield positions, but was suited to right field, especially since he had a good throwing arm.

Reynolds enjoyed his best season in 1930, with career highs in batting average (.359), home runs (22), RBI (104), runs (103), hits (202), triples (18) and games played (138). On May 2, he belted three home runs in consecutive at-bats.

In his 13-year career, Reynolds was a .302 hitter with 80 home runs and 699 RBI in 1222 games.

Reynolds died in Houston at the age of seventy-five.
