Assumed closer Addison Reed (and fellow reliever Matt Stites) were shut down after experiencing soreness during pre-report day side sessions. Manager Chip Hale said no injuries were detected and "it's our way of slowing them down." (Source:

Fantasy Impact: It's probably nothing, but after a year in which he blew 6 saves (38 opportunities), had a 4.25 ERA, and a HR/9 of 1.67, a totally healthy spring would help assuage owners banking on a comeback. Those owners would also point to the 3rd straight season of improved K/9 and BB/9 as well as a HR/FB rate of 13.9% that is high even for playing home games in Chase Field. Reed is currently the 25th RP being selected with an average draft position of 186 per fantasypros draft tools.

Fantasy Impact: The right-handed closer for the Diamondbacks will serve the 9th inning role in winnable situations for Arizona. Reed saved 32 games last year in 38 opportunities, but his fantasy value depends on if the Diamondbacks can improve on last year's 64-98 league-worst record.

The Diamondbacks tendered a contract to closer Addison Reed.

Fantasy Impact: Reed’s first season in Arizona went well with the limited opportunities he was given. His job as the team’s closer is secure and he’ll look to improve on the 32 saves he recorded last year. In NL-only leagues he should be worth a mid-to-late draft pick, and he might be worth a flier in standard leagues.
