Addison Reed (shoulder) is 2-2 1/2 weeks away from throwing off a mound.
Reed has battled some shoulder soreness at the beginning of camp but says it's now completely gone. While the closer is a couple weeks behind his normal schedule, he remains on track to be ready for Opening Day, barring any setbacks. If he should experience a bump in the road and need a disabled list stint, Brad Ziegler would likely fill in at closer. Reed put up a 4.25 ERA and 69/15 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings for the Diamondbacks last season. Mar 1 - 2:39 PM

Addison Reed is battling some mild arm soreness.

It's something to monitor but not a huge concern here in mid-February. Reed will be given a day or two of rest and should then resume his normal spring training routine. The 26-year-old right-hander is poised to open the 2015 season as the Diamondbacks' closer.
Feb 19 - 2:36 PM

Diamondbacks and RHP Addison Reed avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.875 million contract.

It's much closer to the $4.7 million the D'Backs offered last month, though Reed will have a chance to earn $50,000 more through incentives. The closer posted a 4.25 ERA but a terrific 69/15 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings for Arizona last season.
Feb 13 - 12:31 PM

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 MLBTradeRumors.com's projection of $3.8 million. It's probably not a gap sizable enough to preclude an agreement in order to avoid a hearing.

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.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 07:01:00 PM

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.
