1/19:Minnesota Twins relief pitcher Fernando Rodney will open the season as the team's closer, a fact confirmed by manager Paul Molitor on Friday. 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 would often have to come in with runners on. Still, it certainly would not be a surprise if the soon-to-be 41-year-old Rodney struggles and ultimately loses his closer job to Reed.--Chris Zolli - RotoBaller
