Craig Mish of Sirius XM reports that the Twins have signed Fernando Rodney to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.

Rodney, who will turn 41 before he season begins, went 5-4 with a 4.23 ERA and converted 39 of 45 save chances last season with the Diamondbacks. For his career he’s sitting on an even 300 saves over the course of 15 big league seasons in which he’s played for eight different teams, four of which lasted a single season or less.

The Twins make number nine.
