Addison Reed signing two-year contract with Twins valued at about $17M

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 previous year (4.23 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) are worse than Reed's.

Belisle is still a free agent, while Kintzler re-signed with the Nationals on a two-year contract worth at least $10 million. The team had already added Fernando Rodney and Zach Duke in free agency, and already boasted Trevor Hildenberger from last year's club. The contract is pending a physical, according to a report from FoxSports' Ken Rosenthal. To get Reed at that value over two years is a good deal for the Twins.

Addison Reed's short time with the Red Sox has come to an end. He's got a solid 25.6% strikeout rate over that span, paired with an excellent 4% walk rate (after accounting for intentional free passes).

Reed, 29, pitched to a 2.84 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with 31 saves between the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox last season.

What Reed lacks in electric stuff, he makes up for in durability. Over 76 innings of work, he allowed 65 hits and 11 home runs while striking out 76 batters.
