Reports: Twins to sign RHP Reed to 2-year deal

http://ift.tt/2r4vb49

Reliever Addison Reed has agreed to a two-year contract worth approximately $17 million with the Minnesota Twins, according to multiple reports.

Reed made 77 appearances for the Red Sox and New York Mets in 2017, going 2-3 with 19 saves, 15 holds and a 2.84 ERA.

What Reed lacks in electric stuff, he makes up for in durability. Over the past five seasons, the right-hander has made 342 appearances, fifth in the majors behind Bryan Shaw, Tony Watson, Cody Allen and Tyler Clippard.

Reed, 29, also is a consistent strike-thrower, walking only 2.25 batters per nine innings since 2013. He has been a setup man and a closer in seven seasons with the Chicago White Sox, Arizona Diamondbacks, Mets and Red Sox. He wasn’t eligible for a qualifying offer because he was traded in midseason.

The Athletic first reported the Twins’ signing of Reed.

Information from ESPN’s Scott Lauber was used in this report.
