Twins manager Paul Molitor confirmed Friday that Fernando Rodney will open the season as the team's closer.
The Twins officially signed Addison Reed earlier this week after agreeing to terms with Rodney last month, but the ninth inning belongs to Rodney. Reed is the better bet in 2018 and got a bigger contract than Rodney, but the Twins are probably best off giving the latter a clean frame in the ninth rather than using him as a setup man when he'd often have to come in with runners on. Still, it certainly wouldn't be a surprise if the soon-to-be 41-year-old Rodney struggles and ultimately loses his closer job to Reed. Jan 19 - 3:26 PM
