Minnesota Twins Designate Addison Reed For Assignment


According to the teams official Twitter account, the Twins have designated relief pitcher Addison Reed for assignment.

This season, Addison Reed has been dealing with a thumb injury which has pushed back his season debut with the Minnesota Twins. Recently, Reed has been cleared to resume baseball activities and was sent to the minor leagues for a rehab assignment with AAA-Rochester. In five games, Reed has given up 13 hits, 8 earned runs (4 home runs) in five innings of work.

At the time of his designation, the Twins are on the hook for Reed’s $8.5 million dollar salary for the season. Reed’s roster spot will be replaced by fellow relief pitcher Austin Adams.
