Twins finalize 2-year deal with reliever Addison Reed 17 Jan 18

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Right-handed reliever Addison Reed and Minnesota have finalized a $16.75 million, two-year contract, putting another pitcher with closing experience in the back of the Twins’ bullpen.

The Twins agreed to a deal with right-hander Fernando Rodney in the offseason. Reed has 125 saves in seven major league seasons.

He started last season with the New York Mets, then was traded to Boston.

He was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in 2010 and took over the ninth inning for them two years later.
