Fernando Rodney and his bow and arrow will reportedly hit Target Field in 2018

The Twins' reported signing of free-agent relief pitcher Fernando Rodney may not be the biggest move of the offseason, but it is perhaps the most fitting. Rodney, who is known for shooting an imaginary bow and arrow into the sky after closing out games, looks set to launch his arrows at Target Field in 2018.

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:

With an actual target in sight, we expect Rodney's game to be on point in 2018.
