Red Sox acquired RHP Addison Reed from the Mets for RHPs Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek.
The Red Sox will cover Reed’s remaining salary (approximately $2.6 million) as part of the deal. The 28-year-old will form a potent one-two punch with closer Craig Kimbrel in the back-end of Boston’s bullpen. Reed was one of baseball’s best relievers during his time with the Mets, posting a 2.09 ERA over 145 appearances. Jul 31 - 3:08 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Red Sox are "getting closer" to acquiring Addison Reed from the Mets.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports confirms the report and adds that only medicals stand in the way of the deal being official. Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that relief prospects Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek are headed to New York. Reed should be a great addition to Boston's bullpen. The impending free agent owns a 2.20 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 1.4 BB/9 in 128 appearances over the past two seasons.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Indians are also in the mix for Mets reliever Addison Reed.

The Indians appear to be aiming to make a big splash at the trade deadline for the second straight year. The club has been connected to Rangers ace Yu Darvish, but they are working on parallel tracks depending on how talks go. Adding Reed would make a scary Cleveland bullpen even better. Reed has been mentioned most prominently with the Red Sox over the past day or so.
Jul 31 - 9:13 AM

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports that the Mets are engaged in trade talks with the Red Sox on Addison Reed.

Crasnick notes though that the talks are fluid and that the Mets are still talking to other clubs as well. The right-hander seems assuredly to be moved prior to Monday's deadline.
Jul 30 - 4:25 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Addison Reed is a "focus" for the Red Sox as they look to add to their relief corps.

He notes, however, that "no is trade close" and that "other teams remain involved." Reed has been among the hottest targets for just about any contender looking to upgrade their bullpen, as he boasts a 2.57 ERA and 48/6 K/BB ratio over 49 innings for the Mets this season. He's an impending free agent.

Mark Feinsand of named the Brewers and Diamondbacks as teams that have shown interest in Addison Reed.

Reed is in the last year of his contract and the Mets would like to get something for him before he inevitably walks in free agency. He seems to be drawing plenty of interest with the Brewers, D'Backs, Dodgers, Rays and Red Sox among his top suitors. Going to Arizona would be a homecoming of sorts for Reed, who spent a year and a half with the D'Backs before joining the Mets late in the 2015 campaign. Reed has been filling in as the Mets' closer but may have to settle for a setup role if he's dealt at the trade deadline.
Jul 27 - 5:39 PM

Anthony DiComo of reports that "about eight teams" remain interested in Addison Reed as a trade piece.

The Rays, Dodgers and Red Sox are among the teams that have reportedly kicked the tires on potentially acquiring Reed. There is no smoke around an imminent trade at this juncture. In 48 appearances this season, the right-hander is 30-for-33 in save chances and has pitched to a 2.63 ERA with a 48/6 K/BB ratio.
Jul 26 - 4:37 PM

Addison Reed allowed an earned run and two hits in a 17-pitch ninth inning Tuesday in San Diego, securing his 18th save of the season.

Reed has saved the first two games of the series, but he has needed 38 pitches while yielding runs in back-to-back outings for just the third time this season. As such, it almost seems like a certainty that he'll be rested Wednesday should a save chance arise. If so, look for Jerry Blevins to potentially see ninth-inning duties.
Jul 26 - 2:52 AM

Addison Reed allowed an earned run and three hits in a shaky ninth inning Monday against the Padres, but he hung on for his 17th save of the season.

Reed needed 21 pitches to convert the save, his ninth consecutive successful conversion dating back to May 27. He has managed an impressive 2.49 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP with an impressive 48:6 K/BB ratio through 47 innings this season.
Jul 25 - 5:02 AM

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Dodgers are exploring a potential trade for Addison Reed.

The Dodgers would like to bolster their setup corps in front of closer Kenley Jansen and Reed would certainly fit the bill. The 28-year-old right-hander owns a 2.35 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 47/6 K/BB ratio across 46 innings this season while accumulating 16 saves for the Mets.
Jul 22 - 12:11 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Addison Reed is "attracting the most interest of any of the Mets' trade chips."

That's no real surprise given that Reed has posted a stellar 2.40 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, and 47/5 K/BB ratio in 45 innings this season and New York's other chips are Lucas Duda, Asdrubal Cabrera, and T.J. Rivera. There's known to be serious interest from the Red Sox and Brewers, along with a half-dozen other teams. Reed, a free-agent-to-be, would make sense as a bullpen rental for any contender.
Jul 20 - 2:04 PM

Addison Reed fanned two batters while getting the last four outs and earning a save in Wednesday's ballgame against the Cardinals.

He was brought in to squelch an eighth-inning rally and whiffed Luke Voit to end the threat. He gave up a two-out single to Jedd Gyorko in the ninth but grounded out Eric Fryer to slam the door. Reed has 16 saves and a 2.40 ERA with 47 strikeouts and just five walks in 45 innings.
Jul 19 - 11:21 PM

Rob Bradford of reports that the Red Sox are among the clubs showing interest in Addison Reed.

Reed is drawing interest from a bevy of teams, which is no surprise. The Mets reliever has posted a 2.47 ERA and 45/5 K/BB ratio over 43 2/3 innings this season and is an impending free agent. The Red Sox would obviously want him in a setup role ahead of Craig Kimbrel.
Jul 18 - 12:20 PM

Addison Reed got the final four outs to earn a save against the Phillies on Saturday.

He was brought in to get the last out of the eighth inning with a runner on first and he punched out Freddy Galvis. Leading off the ninth, Aaron Altherr doubled on a ball that nearly left the yard but Reed was able to leave him stranded and notch his 14th save. He has a 2.59 ERA with 42 strikeouts and five walks in 41 2/3 innings.
Jul 1 - 9:50 PM

Addison Reed converted his 13th save of the season with a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Phillies on Friday.

Reed needed just seven pitches to make it through the frame. He’s now converted each of his last seven save chances. Reed is a fine fill-in for Jeurys Familia, but he’s an obvious trade candidate assuming the Mets decide to sell.
