Fernando Rodney and his bow and arrow will reportedly hit Target Field in 2018
The Twins' reported signing of free-agent relief pitcher
Last year for the D-backs, Rodney had 39 saves in 45 opportunities. He will enter 2018 with 300 career saves, which places him in a three-way tie with Jason Isringhausen and Bruce Sutter for 26th all-time.
MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reported that Rodney's one-year deal with the team is contingent on the 40-year-old passing a physical:
Fernando Rodney still has to take his physical, which is expected to be tomorrow in Minneapolis, per a source. But he's agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Twins.— Rhett Bollinger (@RhettBollinger) December 14, 2017
The journey from Phoenix to Minneapolis is a long one, so Rodney would do well to grab his bow, sling his quiver over his shoulder and set out through the woods:
With an actual target in sight, we expect Rodney's game to be on point in 2018.
