2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: ADDISON REED COULD CHALLENGE FERNANDO RODNEY FOR SAVES IN MINNY

It has been a busy day at Closing Time as first the San Diego Padres re-upped closer Brad Hand with a new three-year deal and hours later the Minnesota Twins inked free agent reliever Addison Reed to a two-year deal.  Earlier in the winter the Twins had signed longtime veteran closer Fernando Rodney to a one-year deal and the fantasy baseball community collectively groaned since it looked like the guy who just won't go away will get the save chances for the team at least for the start of the 2018 season.  Well the signing of Reed may change that as Reed has been a dominant setup man the last few seasons, which include 2017 when he registered a 2.84 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in a year split between the New York Mets and Boston Red Sox.  Now Reed, of course, has been a failed closer in Chicago with the White Sox and the Arizona Diamondbacks but added offspeed stuff has turned him into a much more effective pitcher the last few years.  Combine that with the fact Rodney has been posting ugly ERA's for a few seasons now and we have the making of a spring training situation worth watching.
