Addison Reed collected his fourth save of the season in Wednesday's defeat of the Cubs.
Reed tossed a perfect ninth inning, retiring Mike Olt via groundout, Welington Castillo on a strikeout, and Luis Valbuena on a game-ending lineout. Reed should start to see more save chances as the D'Backs right the ship after what has been a dreadful opening month. Apr 23 - 5:52 PM

Addison Reed gave up a homer to Juan Uribe in the ninth to blow his first save of the year on Friday.

It was Reed's first blown save, but he's already allowed seven runs -- four earned -- in nine innings this year. The Diamondbacks have shown a stunning lack of patience with their starters thus far, so Reed better not have another misstep right away or he could put his job in jeopardy.

Addison Reed slammed the door on the Rockies on Sunday, securing his second save of the season.

He got into a bit of trouble allowing a leadoff single and a walk, but got Wilin Rosario to ground into a run-scoring double play, then induced a fly out from Nolan Arenado to end the proceedings. Despite J.J. Putz and Brad Ziegler lurking, with every converted save Reed adds to his job security.
Apr 6 - 6:50 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson confirmed Thursday that Addison Reed will be the team's closer.

Gibson wanted to make Reed earn the job this spring and the 25-year-old right-hander succeeded in doing that with seven innings of one-run ball. The Diamondbacks acquired Reed over the offseason from the White Sox in exchange for third base prospect Matt Davidson. Reed should carry great fantasy value this year on a strong Arizona team.

Addison Reed notched another perfect inning against the Brewers in Cactus League play on Friday, striking out one in the process.

With J.J. Putz and Brad Ziegler joining Reed at the back-end of the Diamondbacks bullpen, he needed to have a good spring to solidify himself in that role. He's certainly responded to this point, allowing just one run on five hits, with an 8/1 K/BB ratio through his first seven innings.
Mar 14 - 11:27 PM

Addison Reed struck out two in a scoreless inning of work against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Reed, the D`Backs' new closer, was able to dance around a leadoff single and a two-out double with a pair of strikeouts in the seventh inning. Arizona is hoping to see plenty of that from the right-hander, acquired in an off-season trade with the White Sox.
Feb 26 - 5:48 PM

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers on Monday stopped short of naming Addison Reed the team's closer.

Reed cost the D'Backs top third base prospect Matt Davidson, but Towers isn't ready to hand the 25-year-old the ninth inning job just yet. "(He) will be pitching in meaningful role, one way or the other," Towers said. Ultimately, Reed figures to beat out J.J. Putz for the gig.

Diamondbacks acquired RHP Addison Reed from the White Sox for 3B Matt Davidson.

Arizona's trade for Mark Trumbo pushed Martin Prado into a full-time role at the hot corner, so the D'Backs used their surplus third baseman to upgrade the back end of the bullpen. Reed had a pedestrian 3.79 ERA in 2013 for Chicago, but he still finished with 40 saves and has room for improvement at age 24. The young right-hander should maintain good fantasy value on a Diamondbacks team that will be looking to contend in 2014.

MLB.com's Steve Gilbert reports that the Diamondbacks are close to acquiring White Sox closer Addison Reed.

Matt Davidson, a promising third base prospect, is reportedly headed to Chicago in return. Reed saved 40 games in 2013 for the White Sox while posting a 3.79 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 72/23 K/BB ratio across 71 1/3 frames. The 24-year-old righty should do well in the ninth inning for Arizona and will maintain considerable fantasy value on a good Diamondbacks team.

Addison Reed blew his seventh save of the season as the White Sox fell to the Tigers on Saturday.

Chicago had a 6-0 lead when the bottom of the ninth inning began, but the Tigers attacked White Sox reliever Nate Jones for five straight hits (and five runs) and then completed the rally against Reed, who walked four. Reed, 24, still owns a decent 3.67 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 69/21 K/BB ratio through 68 2/3 innings this season. He has 38 saves.

Addison Reed allowed a run but escaped in collecting his 37th save of the season Sunday against the Orioles.

Reed was lucky to have inherited a three-run lead, and luckier to have escaped with only one run charged to his ledger. Baltimore loaded the bases in the ninth with no outs via two walks and a single. Reed induced a run-scoring Ryan Flaherty fielder's choice ground out to first before Brian Roberts' pop out allowed Chicago to double pinch-runner Chris Dickerson off first. Reed has allowed five runs over his last five outings, but Chicago doesn't have anyone nearly talented enough to threaten his job status. He owns a 3.55 ERA and 1.06 WHIP.

Addison Reed suffered his second loss and sixth blown save of the season on Saturday, allowing two runs in 2/3 of an inning against the Orioles.

Cole Gillaspie's solo homer in the top of the 10th gave Reed a one-run advantage to protect in the bottom half of the frame. With two outs and runners on second and third, Reed coughed up a walk-off, two-run single to Matt Wieters. The youngster has been roughed up for two losses, a blown save and four runs on six hits (two homers) in his last four appearances. Despite the rough patch, he's in no danger of losing his job.

After coming into a tie game, Addison Reed gave up back-to-back homers in the ninth to take a loss Monday against the Astros.

Those were just the fourth and fifth homers allowed by Reed in 62 1/3 innings this season. He hadn't given up a run of any sort in 13 innings over his last 11 appearances, and the loss was only his second of the year.

Addison Reed earned his 35th save of the season Sunday by tossing a scoreless ninth inning against the Rangers.

The youngster has tallied 13 straight scoreless innings, slashing his ERA from 3.91 to 3.08 since August 7. Reed seems long removed from a June in which he was whipped to the tune of a 7.62 ERA. He posted a 3.60 ERA in July and has allowed just one run in 15 1/3 August frames.

Addison Reed earned his 31st save of the season Sunday in the White Sox' 5-2 win against the Twins.

Reed struck out one and walked one in the stress-free outing. The youngster has tallied nine straight scoreless innings, cutting his ERA from 3.91 to 3.30 in less than two weeks. As a closer who pitches to contact in front of a shoddy defense, Reed's numbers aren't as good as they should be, but he still owns a decent 3.30 ERA and 1.03 WHIP through 57 1/3 frames.
