Addison Reed picks up win on Sunday

Addison Reed pitched the eighth inning of Sunday's tie ballgame against the Brewers, striking out one and not allowing a baserunner. The Twins rallied in the bottom half of the inning, and Fernando Rodney closed out the game to get Reed the win.

Fantasy Impact

Reed has been "on again, off again" so far in 2018, but over the past two weeks he has a 1.35 ERA and more than a K per inning. However, Fernando Rodney has been just as good over that span, so his closer job is not currently in jeopardy. Reed is worthy of a stash in shallower leagues for save potential, and he can help out with ratios in deeper leagues. Reed sports a 2.59 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and 25 Ks in 24 1/3 innings.

Addison Reed pitches a scoreless inning

Addison Reed pitched the ninth inning of Wednesday’s game, allowing two hits and striking out one. The Twins would lose to the Cardinals, 7-5.

Fantasy Impact

Reed has pitched fairly well since imploding about a week ago, but Fernando Rodney is still the closer until he blows a few more chances, in combination with Reed consistently shutting the door. Reed is striking out more than a K per inning. He is a good stash if you’re looking for solid ratios or a potential closer replacement.

Addison Reed pitches a scoreless frame

Addison Reed pitched the eighth inning of Sunday’s game against the Angels, allowing just one hit. The Halos proceeded to rally after that, and Zach Duke picked up the loss.

Fantasy Impact

Reed has pitched okay this year, but he has not done enough to unseat Fernando Rodney in the closer’s role. Reed sports a 2.61 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 20 Ks in 20 2/3 innings. While those are solid numbers, they are skewed by Reed’s great performances in non high-leverage situations.

Addison Reed allows multiple runs Sunday

Addison Reed carried a 0.90 ERA into Sunday's game against the Rays, but he allowed two runs on three hits including a homer to bring his ERA up to 2.45 on the season. Reed was credited with the loss.

Fantasy Impact

While many were speculating that the Twins would eventually hand the closer job over to Reed, this should set the timetable back. It is still a possibility, but he is not quite worth picking up as a stash and wait reliever.

Addison Reed fires two scoreless frames

Addison Reed recorded two strikeouts over two perfect innings of work in Thursday's opener.

Fantasy Impact

Reed was indeed perfect Thursday, something that cannot be send of the team's closer, Fernando Rodney. Reed is an intriguing stash for saves considering the roller coaster ride that is Rodney.
