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. Jul 12 - 7:01 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.

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.
Jul 9 - 12:23 AM

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.
Jul 6 - 4:32 PM

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."
Jul 3 - 8:06 AM

Addison Reed allowed two inherited runs to score and gave up a walk-off single in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Reed entered in a tough spot, coming in with two runners on and nobody out, but he didn't do much to inspire confidence, either. After getting an out on a long fly ball from Josh Harrison, Starling Marte hit a two-run double off the center field wall to tie the game. After an intentional walk to Andrew McCutchen, Ike Davis hit the game-winning single, saddling Reed with his fourth loss of the year. Reed now has a 4.15 ERA and 1.21 WHIP, and his job security, while still safe, slips a little more with each blown save.
Jul 1 - 9:49 PM

Addison Reed allowed one run on a single and two walks in the ninth inning to blow his third save Tuesday against the Indians.

Reed has given up a run in 15 of his 33 appearances, not exactly what Arizona was hoping for when they dealt third baseman Matt Davidson for the closer in December. If there's a silver lining, it's that Reed hasn't allowed more than two runs in any appearance; he's been consistently mediocre, but never putrid. He isn't the best fit for Arizona as a fly-ball pitcher, and Reed set his career-high for homers allowed earlier this month (it was previously six; he's coughed up eight so far). The Snakes don't have enough pitching or short-term playoff aspirations to consider displacing Reed, and it's not like his 4.18 ERA demands it.
Jun 25 - 3:23 AM

Addison Reed allowed two hits and one run in a non-save situation against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Getting some work with a 6-2 lead, Reed allowed an Andre Ethier single and a two-out double by Hanley Ramirez before retiring Yasiel Puig to end the game. Reed has now allowed runs in three of his last five appearances, owning a 4.15 ERA on the year. His seat may not be red hot, but manager Kirk Gibson may begin to consider other options if he doesn't get it figured out soon.
Jun 15 - 9:25 PM

Addison Reed nailed down his 16th save of the season with a scoreless frame in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

Reed preserved the three-run lead with ease, inducing a groundout and a couple strikeouts. It's often been rocky for Reed, who dropped his ERA to an un-closer-like 3.99. However, he's converted 16-of-18 save chances and appears to have a decent amount of leash.
Jun 10 - 8:06 PM

Working in a tie game, Addison Reed gave up his eighth homer of the year Saturday to Jason Heyward in the 10th inning against the Braves.

Miguel Montero let Reed off the hook by homering in the bottom of the 10th to retie the game. Reed's eight homers allowed in 28 1/3 innings this year is a ridiculous total -- he's already two-thirds of the way to the MLB-high for any reliever in 2012 -- but he's 15-for-17 saving games anyway. There's no need for Arizona to consider a change in the ninth.
Jun 8 - 2:27 AM

Addison Reed nailed down his 14th save of the season with a scoreless inning in Sunday's win over the Mets.

Yes, it was a scoreless inning, but it was a nail-biter. Reed allowed back-to-back one-out singles while protecting the one-run lead, but he was able to escape with a strikeout and then a flyout where Ender Inciarte made a nice catch. While he has a less than inspiring 4.18 ERA, Reed has converted 14-of-16 save chances and has pretty good job security.
May 25 - 4:47 PM

Addison Reed tallied his 13th save of the season in Saturday's 3-2 defeat of the Mets.

Reed retired all three batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning to preserve Arizona's one-run lead. He has an ugly 4.37 ERA this season but ranks among the National League leaders in converted saves.
May 24 - 7:38 PM

Addison Reed picked up his 12th save of the season with a scoreless ninth in Sunday's win over the Dodgers.

Reed struck out the first two batters he faced before allowing a two-out single to Scott Van Slyke. He retired Dee Gordon to end the very minor threat and the game. May hasn't been kind to Reed, as he has had four scored-upon appearances out of eight thus far, and he now owns a 4.57 ERA despite a 26/4 K/BB ratio in 21 2/3 innings.
May 18 - 7:14 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said after Monday's game that Addison Reed is still his closer.

Reed blew his second save of the season and took the loss Monday after giving up home runs to Danny Espinosa and Kevin Frandsen in the ninth inning, but Gibson isn't ready to make a change. "There's no controversy here. He's our closer, and he's done a hell of a job for us," said Gibson. "You can forget that. It didn't work out for us tonight, and it [stinks]." Reed owns a 5.03 ERA in 20 appearances this season and has allowed six home runs in just 19 2/3 innings. His secondary numbers, including a 23/4 K/BB ratio, have been solid, but he can't afford many more hiccups.
May 13 - 9:21 AM

Addison Reed earned his 10th save of 2014 in the Diamondbacks' 3-2 defeat of the Brewers on Wednesday.

Reed gave up a leadoff double to Scooter Gennett in the bottom of the ninth inning and Gennett later scored on a Lyle Overbay sacrifice fly, but Mark Reynolds struck out swinging to end the late Milwaukee rally. Reed has a 4.08 ERA on the year but he's 10-for-11 in save attempts for a Diamondbacks club that has only 13 wins.
