Addison Reed gave up six runs and two homers in two-thirds of an inning of relief Friday against the Astros.
A.J. Reed and Colin Moran took him deep. Reed had already allowed three runs in 4 1/3 innings entering this one, and this all very unusual for him; he's given up nine runs this spring after giving up a total of 10 over 42 1/3 innings previously during exhibition play (most of that previous exhibition play was in high-scoring Arizona, too). It's not a huge concern yet, but Reed is the guy the Mets expect to open up in the closer's role with Jeurys Familia likely to be suspended. Mar 10 - 5:22 PM

Mets and RHP Addison Reed avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.75 million contract.

It was the reliever's final year of arbitration eligibility. Reed will likely enter 2017 as the Mets' closer before sliding back into a setup role after Jeurys Familia returns from an expected suspension.

Addison Reed struck out the side in the eighth inning in Friday’s win over the Phillies.

Reed had a rare clunker against the Phillies the last time he saw them on September 22, but he has bounced back with three straight scoreless appearances. He now owns a 1.86 ERA and 108/18 K/BB ratio over 92 innings since being acquired from the Diamondbacks last August. He’s been quite a find for Sandy Alderson.

Addison Reed struck out three batters in a scoreless eighth inning Friday against the Marlins.

Reed continues to thrive as the Mets’ primary set-up man. He hasn’t allowed a run in 14 straight appearances dating back to the end of April and owns a 1.82 ERA on the year. He has struck out 34 batters in 24 2/3 innings while issuing just six walks.

Addison Reed handled a scoreless ninth inning for the Mets on Wednesday, slamming the door on the Reds to secure a 5-2 win.

The Mets looked to a different closer on Wednesday because Jeurys Familia had thrown in four of the last five days, including the past three days. Reed ultimately navigated an easy ninth inning. He lowered his ERA to 2.25 and now has 15 strikeouts in just 12 innings of work. His trade to the Mets has seemingly re-ignited his career.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen said Saturday that Addison Reed will function as the team's primary setup man in front of closer Jeurys Familia.

The announcement doesn't come as a huge surprise as Reed has prior closing experience. After coming over in a deadline deal from the Diamondbacks, Reed registered a terrific 1.17 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 17/5 K/BB ratio over his 15 1/3 innings with the Mets in 2015. Familia owners can safely target him as a handcuff option in the later rounds of drafts.

Mets and RHP Addison Reed avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $5.3 million contract.

Reed rebounded last year after a late-season trade to the Mets, posting a 1.17 ERA over 17 appearances. He'll be counted on as a setup man in 2016.

Mets acquired RHP Addison Reed from the Diamondbacks in exchange for RHPs Matt Koch and Miller Diaz.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York had the news first. It's been a mostly disappointing 2015 season for Reed, who went from closing games for the Diamondbacks to open the year to pitching out of the bullpen at Triple-A Reno in June. He has been much better lately and the Mets will hope he can stay on that roll. Arizona will get two minor league pitchers in return.

Diamondbacks recalled RHP Addison Reed from Triple-A Reno.

Reed has posted a 1.74 ERA with 11 strikeouts over 10 1/3 innings since being demoted to Reno last month. He'll surely be used in low-leverage situations initially but could work his way into a setup role.

Diamondbacks optioned RHP Addison Reed to Triple-A Reno.

It's been a disaster of a season for Reed, who was demoted from his closer role over a month ago and hasn't pitched any better in lower-leverage situations. He holds a 5.92 ERA and 1.73 WHIP across 25 relief appearances. Enrique Burgos has been activated from the disabled list to take his spot in the bullpen.

Addison Reed gave up four earned runs in less than an inning of work Saturday against the Padres.

Reed surrendered a walk, a double, two triples, and a Melvin Upton homer while recording only two outs in the brutal appearance. The 26-year-old right-hander now has a 5.92 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 24 1/3 innings this season. He's nothing more than a middle reliever now.

The Arizona Republic's Nick Piecoro reports that the Diamondbacks are moving closer to putting Addison Reed back into the closer's role.

Brad Ziegler is a better pitcher than Reed, but the Diamondbacks would still be better off with Ziegler in a setup role, since he can be better spotted against right-handed hitters then than he can as the ninth-inning guy. Reed doesn't have such significant platoon splits.

After entering a tie game, Addison Reed gave up two runs in one-third of an inning Friday against the Cubs.

This won't help his chances of returning to the closer's role anytime soon. Reed had pitched four scoreless innings since losing his job by giving up four runs on May 13.
Sat, May 23, 2015 01:38:00 AM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Friday that Addison Reed has been demoted from the closer role.

He plans to play the matchups, although Brad Ziegler would seem to be the clear favorite for save chances. Reed will work earlier in the game as he attempts to fine-tune his mechanics. The demotion doesn't come as a surprise, as Reed has blown two of four save chances while posting a 7.20 ERA. For what it's worth, Hale said he envisions Reed returning to the ninth inning once he gets his mechanics in order.

Addison Reed blew his first save of the season in Thursday's 7-6, 12-inning victory against the Giants.

It wasn't his fault. Protecting a 4-3 lead in the ninth, Buster Posey reached on an infield single and Reed proceeded to record two straight outs. He induced a towering fly to Joe Panik which should have been caught by Ender Inciarte but which turned into a game-tying RBI triple. On the other hand, the shot to right center probably would have been a home run in most any park but AT&T. Regardless, Reed issued an intentional free pass to Brandon Crawford and then walked Casey McGehee to load the bases. Andrew Chafin was brought in to face the lefty Nori Aoki and struck him out to strand the bases loaded. Though this was the first run Reed has given up all year, he now has an unsightly 2.63 WHIP in three appearances. Perhaps his shoulder is still bothering him a bit.
