Addison Reed requested $5.6 million and was offered $4.7 million by the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged.
Both numbers are well above's projection of $3.8 million. It's probably not a gap sizable enough to preclude an agreement in order to avoid a hearing. Jan 16 - 6:01 PM

Addison Reed blew his sixth save of the season, allowing a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth as the D'Backs fell to the Rockies on Thursday.

Reed has now allowed runs in each of his last three appearances, though Rosario's blast was his first home run allowed since July 30. Reed just hasn't had a very good season, now the owner of an ugly 4.40 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 66/15 K/BB ratio.

Addison Reed gave up four hits and two runs in a non-save situation against the Padres on Sunday.

Brought in to preserve a four-run lead, Reed instead allowed hits to three of the first four batters he faced. With two runners on and two outs, Cameron Maybin represented the winning run, grounding out to end the game. Reed has allowed runs in two of his last three appearances to raise his ERA to 3.83. Reed has 31 saves in his first year in the desert.

Addison Reed recorded a pair of strikeouts in a perfect ninth inning as he notched his 31st save in Friday's win against the Rockies.

The D'Backs had taken a 5-2 lead in the bottom of the eighth, so Reed had plenty of breathing room. Reed is 31-for-36 in save chances with a 3.61 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP, and a 62/12 K/BB ratio in 52 1/3 innings.

Addison Reed tossed a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Marlins for his 29th save of the season.

Things were a little rough for Reed going into the All-Star break, but he has successfully converted each of his last nine save opportunities. The 25-year-old owns a 3.83 ERA and 58/12 K/BB ratio over 49 1/3 innings this season.

Addison Reed protected a three-run lead in the ninth for his 27th save as the Diamondbacks topped the Pirates 7-4 on Thursday.

It was nice to see him get back on the horse one day after serving up a three-run homer versus the Reds (he earned the save anyway). Reed induced a ground out from Jordy Mercer, struck out pinch-hitter Travis Snider, gave up a double to Josh Harrison, and then struck out the talented rookie Gregory Polanco on high cheese to shut off the lights. Reed has allowed only one run over his last eight appearances, slashing his ERA from 4.42 to 3.86.

Addison Reed allowed a three-run homer but was able to convert his 26th save Wednesday versus the Reds.

Eury De La Rosa gave up a leadoff single and a one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth inning before the D'Backs turned the keys over to their closer. Reed then yielded a two-out three-run shot to Devin Mesoraco but rallied to fan Ryan Ludwick for the final out. Reed, who has an underwhelming 3.95 ERA on the season, could be available at Thursday's July 31 trade deadline.

ESPN's Jayson Stark reports that the Diamondbacks are telling teams that "they'd talk" about trading Addison Reed.

It's not clear at this point whether they've had any real discussions with other teams, but it appears they're at least willing to entertain the possibility of a deal. Reed has had an up-and-down season for the D'Backs but his numbers overall (3.89 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 47/11 K/BB ratio over 41 2/3 innings) have been pretty good. He'll be eligible for arbitration for the first time this winter. Stark also notes that the D'Backs are listening on Aaron Hill, Oliver Perez and, "for the right offer," Martin Prado and Josh Collmenter. They're expected to hang on to Brad Ziegler.

Addison Reed enjoyed a 1-2-3 ninth inning en route to his 23rd save as the Diamondbacks eked out a win over the Cubs on Sunday.

1-2-3 innings have been few and far between for Reed this season, his first with the D'Backs. Sunday's outing leaves him 23-for-28 in save chances with a 4.08 ERA, a 1.16 WHIP, and a 44/10 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.

Addison Reed protected a one-run lead in the ninth for his 22nd save as the Diamondbacks topped the Cubs 5-4 on Friday.

Two in a row for Reed after he blew three of his previous six chances. If he can put up another zero next time out, it'll be the first time he's gone three straight appearances without allowing a run since May 17-June 1, when he went six in a row.

Addison Reed picked up his 21st save of the season Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 2-0 win over the Giants.

Reed retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning. It was a needed clean outing for the 25-year-old right-hander, who has blown five saves and owns a rough 4.30 ERA in 37 2/3 innings this season.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson on Wednesday said that Addison Reed remains the team's closer.

Reed blew another save Tuesday, serving up a two-out, two-run homer to Marcell Ozuna in a loss to the Marlins. The reliever has blown five saves, allowed a whopping nine home runs over 36 2/3 innings and has a 4.42 ERA, but Gibson obviously thinks he's still the club's best option in the ninth inning. We can't imagine Reed having more leash going forward, but then again we figured a change would probably have been made by now. Brad Ziegler remains the best bet for saves in Arizona if the Snakes eventually make a move.

Addison Reed gave up a two-run homer to blow a save and take the loss in Tuesday's 2-1 setback versus the Marlins.

Reed came on in a tense pitcher's duel and promptly walked Ed Lucas. It looked like he would dance around danger after Reed mowed down Giancarlo Stanton and drew a line out from Casey McGehee, but Marcell Ozuna took him deep. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson continues to stick by the 25-year-old stopper, but even Job would be running out of patience by this point. Having coughed up nine homers, Reed is four away from matching his career output prior to this season. He's 1-5 and 20-for-25 in save conversions to go to with a 4.42 ERA.

Addison Reed allowed one hit but finished the Braves off for his 20th save on Sunday.

Reed surrendered a leadoff single to Tommy La Stella before striking out Christian Bethancourt and getting Ryan Doumit to ground into a double play. It was a nice rebound from blowing his fourth save his last time out. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson has said he's sticking with Reed, so adventurous fantasy owners need to stick with him while he's getting save chances, too.

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday that he's sticking with Addison Reed at closer.

Reed blew his fourth save of the season Tuesday in Arizona's loss to the Pirates and owns an ugly 4.15 ERA in 34 2/3 total innings this season, but Gibson was annoyed that the question was even asked Wednesday. "I think he's been pretty good," Gibson said. "He's done a pretty good job for us. We've had no discussions about removing him. You might feel differently, but we don't."
