The Minnesota Twins and free agent relief pitcher Addison Reed have agreed on a two year, $17 million deal, per multiple reports.

Reed, 29, was a third round pick of the Chicago White Sox in 2010. Reed has spent his entire career as a relief pitcher, and has generally been used as a closer while logging time with four major league teams. After coming up to the majors in 2011 with Chicago, he spent the next two seasons with the ChiSox before going to Arizona in the 2013-14 offseason in exchange for Matt Davidson. The D-Backs dealt Reed to the Mets in August, 2015, and then the Mets shipped Reed to Boston at the trade deadline this year.

Reed has a career 3.40 ERA and 3.18 FIP in 402 innings over 410 games, with 9.5 Ks per 9. Reed was generally seen to get something around this $8.5 million per year average annual value, though for 3-4 years rather than two years.
