Addison Reed took a blown save after giving up a run in the eighth inning Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Fernando Rodney has opened the door for Reed to potentially claim the closer's role in Minnesota, but Reed hasn't looked very sharp himself thus far. His velocity is down and he's allowing plenty of flyballs, so it's fortunate that he's given up just one homer in 15 innings to date. One wonders if things will get worse for the Twins pen before they get better. May 2 - 12:06 AM

Addison Reed (illness) tossed 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief in the Twins' defeat of the Astros on Wednesday.

Reed was unavailable for Tuesday's game because of strep throat, but he is clearly feeling better now. The 29-year-old setup man has a 1.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 9/3 K/BB ratio in eight innings this season for Minnesota.

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Wednesday morning that Addison Reed (illness) is doing "much better."

Reed was sent home early on Tuesday after coming down with strep throat, but it sounds like he could be available out of the Twins' bullpen on Wednesday afternoon against the Astros. The 29-year-old setup man owns a 1.42 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio through 6 1/3 innings this season.
Apr 11 - 11:13 AM

Twins signed RHP Addison Reed to a two-year, $16.75 million contract.

The deal was reported on Saturday and is now official. Reed is expected to enter the season as a setup man for Fernando Rodney, although it's certainly conceivable that he could find himself in the closer role at some point. The 29-year-old reliever held a 2.84 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 76/15 K/BB ratio across 76 innings between the Mets and Red Sox in 2017.
Jan 15 - 5:41 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Twins have come to an agreement on a two-year contract with Addison Reed.

The deal, which is pending a physical, is reportedly just under $17 million. The 29-year-old hurler posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 76/15 K/BB ratio in 76 innings between the Mets and Red Sox in 2017. He should be in the mix for save chances in Minnesota, with his primary competition coming from Fernando Rodney.
Jan 13 - 1:31 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Rockies have talked to Addison Reed's representatives.

Colorado is also in on Wade Davis and Greg Holland even after re-signing Jake McGee and bringing in Bryan Shaw. Reed wouldn't be an ideal fit for Coors Field as a flyball pitcher coming off a year in which he allowed 11 home runs, but the 28-year-old reliever boasts a 2.40 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 167/28 K/BB ratio in 153 2/3 innings over the last two seasons. He would likely serve as the Rockies' closer, unless they bring in even more bullpen help.

Marc Carig of Newsday hears that the Mets are still in on Addison Reed.

Reed was said to be nearing a three-year deal with the Phillies on Tuesday evening, but that turned out to be inaccurate. Things are moving quickly on the free agent relief market, so he should land somewhere soon. The 28-year-old right-hander opened the 2017 season as the Mets' closer before they traded him to the Red Sox on July 31 for three minor leaguers.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms that there is no agreement in place between the Phillies and free agent reliever Addison Reed.

ESPN's Buster Olney reported earlier that Philadelphia was closing in on a three-year agreement with Reed, but it seems there has been a last-minute pivot to Tommy Hunter. Reed should still land somewhere soon as the relief dominos continue to fall at the Winter Meetings in Orlando. The 28-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.40 ERA, 0.996 WHIP, and 167/28 K/BB ratio in 153 2/3 innings over the last two seasons and he operated as the Mets' closer for a time in 2017.

Addison Reed is closing in on a three-year agreement with the Phillies, per ESPN's Buster Olney.

This comes on the heels of Philly's reported two-year, $16.25 million free agent agreement with setup man Pat Neshek. Reed could get another chance to close in Philadelphia after tallying 19 saves with the Mets in early-to-mid 2017 before a July 31 trade to the Red Sox. The 28-year-old right-hander owns a dominant 2.40 ERA, 0.996 WHIP, and 167/28 K/BB ratio over his last 153 2/3 innings dating back to the beginning of the 2016 season. Olney is hearing that the three-year deal will be worth around $9 million annually.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 08:09:00 PM

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Phillies have had "ongoing discussions" with free agent reliever Addison Reed.

The Phillies have reportedly inked Pat Neshek to a two-year, $16.25 million contract, but they apparently aren't done improving their bullpen. Reed will be more costly and perhaps require another year. He posted a 2.84 ERA and 76/15 K/BB ratio over 76 innings this season between the Mets and the Red Sox.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 02:03:00 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday says the Mets have "targeted" reliever Addison Reed.

Reed actually revived his career with the Mets after arriving in 2015. The club only just dealt him to the Red Sox a few months ago, in fact. The Mets would have competition from the Cubs and Cardinals, at least, for Reed's services. Wherever he ends up, it sounds as though the 28-year-old is being viewed as a high-leverage, late-inning reliever by clubs.

Relievers Addison Reed and Brandon Morrow are "high on the Cubs' wish list," according to CBS Chicago's Bruce Levine.

The Cubs are primed to lose closer Wade Davis in free agency and Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said the team needs to "retool the bullpen to a certain extent." Reed has closing experience and put up a 2.84 ERA and 76/15 K/BB ratio over 76 innings this past season. The Cardinals are among the other teams said to have interest in both Reed and Morrow.

According to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak met Sunday with the representatives for Addison Reed and Brandon Morrow.

Reed and Morrow have the same representatives as Yu Darvish, but it's no secret that the Cardinals are prioritizing late-inning relief. Reed posted a 2.84 ERA and 76/15 K/BB ratio over 76 innings this season between the Mets and the Red Sox. He offers plenty in the way of closing experience. As for Morrow, he put up a 2.05 ERA and 50/9 K/BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings during the regular season before some heavy usage during the postseason. Both figure to be attractive names, as they won't require giving up a draft pick like Greg Holland and Wade Davis.

Red Sox acquired RHP Addison Reed from the Mets for RHPs Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek.

The Red Sox will cover Reed’s remaining salary (approximately $2.6 million) as part of the deal. The 28-year-old will form a potent one-two punch with closer Craig Kimbrel in the back-end of Boston’s bullpen. Reed was one of baseball’s best relievers during his time with the Mets, posting a 2.09 ERA over 145 appearances.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Red Sox are "getting closer" to acquiring Addison Reed from the Mets.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports confirms the report and adds that only medicals stand in the way of the deal being official. Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that relief prospects Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek are headed to New York. Reed should be a great addition to Boston's bullpen. The impending free agent owns a 2.20 ERA with 9.9 K/9 and 1.4 BB/9 in 128 appearances over the past two seasons.
