Reed posted a 2.84 ERA in 2017, a year in which he went from the New York Mets to the Boston Red Sox. He was excellent for the Mets in 2015 and 2016, when he posted an ERA under two after being traded there in 2015.
If it’s up to the Twins, this won’t be their last piece of business this offseason. It’s still a very nice addition to shore up their bullpen.
