The Minnesota Twins and free-agent reliever Addison Reed agreed to a two-year, $17 million contract, according to multiple reports Saturday.

The terms of the deal, which is still pending a physical, are 2 years and slightly less than $17 million, according to Rosenthal.

Reed, who played his college baseball at San Diego State University, was originally selected by the Chicago White Sox in the third round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft. The team had already added Fernando Rodney and Zach Duke in free agency, and already boasted Trevor Hildenberger from last year's club.

Equities Analysts Offer Predictions for Valley National Bancorp's FY2019 Earnings (VLY)
The Company's segments include Consumer Lending, Commercial Lending, Investment Management, and Corporate and Other Adjustments. This company shares are 2.19% off its target price of $1280.16 and the current market capitalization stands at $594.04B.

In Reed, the Twins are getting a hard-throwing righty who has plenty of closing experiencing.

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. A year ago he allowed 1.3 homers per nine innings, which was on the high side.

Over the past 3 seasons, Reed has a 2.66 ERA in 209 2/3 innings split between the Diamondbacks, Mets and Red Sox. The AL average a year ago was 1.31, but not surprisingly, relievers were quite a bit lower (1.17) than starters (1.4). He was fantastic in 2016, and a little less so in 2017. His 76:15 K:BB was phenomenal, but he did have some trouble with the long ball, as he compiled a 1.3 HR/9 after two straight seasons when he gave up one home run per 18 innings.
