Addison Reed Agrees To Deal With Minnesota Twins

Rodney said at the time of his signing with the team last month that he was told he was going to be the guy in the ninth inning, but his numbers a year ago (4.23 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) are worse than Reed's.

According to Ken Rosenthal of the Athletic, The Twins have signed Reed to a two-year deal worth around $17 million.

In Reed, the Twins are getting a hard-throwing righty who has plenty of closing experiencing.

Reed spent the 2017 campaign between the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox, pitching to the tune of a 2.84 ERA in 77 relief appearances. There's value in simply not walking people, but it's worth noting that Reed's 24% strikeout rate was exactly 50th among N.L. relievers past year.

Rockwell Collins, Inc. (COL)'s Stock Is Buy After Making All Time High
Fort Point Capital Ltd Liability Corporation owns 0.11% invested in Ares Capital Corporation (NASDAQ:ARCC) for 13,980 shares. Highlander Capital Management LLC grew its position in shares of Rockwell Collins by 106.0% in the 2nd quarter. (NYSE:COL).

The right-hander will be one of the leading candidates to be the Twins' closer next season, along with fellow recent signee Fernando Rodney.

What Reed lacks in electric stuff, he makes up for in durability. That's a lot of long balls, but it didn't exactly prevent him from being an effective reliever lsat year.

Addison Reed reportedly has found a new team. He was fantastic in 2016, and a little less so in 2017. He has been a setup man and a closer in seven seasons with the Chicago White Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, Mets and Red Sox.
