Reliever Addison Reed agrees to 2-year deal with Twins

Reliever Addison Reed agrees to 2-year deal with Twins

The Athletic first reported the Twins' signing of Reed.

Reed, 29, also is a consistent strike-thrower, walking only 2.25 batters per nine innings since 2013. The deal, which is pending a physical, is reportedly just under $17 million. To get Reed at that value over two years is a good deal for the Twins. Reed converted 19 of his 21 save chances for NY before being dealt to the Red Sox prior to the trade deadline.

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.

If there's a concern with Reed, it's that he doesn't have the big fastball of some of the other marquee late-inning relievers, and he gave up 11 home runs a year ago.

Reed, a third-round pick of the White Sox in the 2010 draft, was a teammate of Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg at San Diego State, and has pitched for four major-league teams in his seven-year career. He figures to open the season as one of the primary setup relievers behind new closer Fernando Rodney, who signed a one-year free-agent contract with the Twins in December.
