The Twins announced that they have designated the right-handed Addison Reed for the job. The experienced setup man had started a rehab assignment in Triple-A Rochester, having opened the season on the injury list for a crunching thumbs up to 88-89 mph in recent appearances.
It's a disappointing result for the Twins and Reed, whose initial $ 16.75 million two-year deal with Minnesota appeared to be relative trading. Reed made an excellent start last season, reaching a value of 2.36 ERA at 9.1 K / 9, 2.4 BB / 9 and 1.01 HR / 9 in his first 26 2/3 innings. However, he began to fight back and landed in July due to triceps and an elbow impact on the shelf. He fought on his return as he demonstrated the same kind of speed loss Hayes had mentioned regarding Reed's rehab assignment. He finished the season with a cumulative value of 4.50 ERA, 7.1
Minnesota has one week to act on Reed, release him or adjust him through disclaimers. He's likely to clean up with the $ 8.5 million salary this season, and even if the twins try to qualify him for Triple-A, Reed could turn down the job in favor of free choice.
His place on the 40-man squad goes right-handed Austin D. Adams was reported on advancing to the Major Leagues last night. Adams contract was now officially selected according to the announcement of the twins.
