Addison Reed signs with the Minnesota Twins

According to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, the Minnesota Twins have signed Addison Reed to a two-year deal worth around $17 million.

Fantasy Impact

The relief market continues to be one of the only position groups making waves this off-season. Reed turned 29 years old this winter, and is coming off a year where he posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 76 strikeouts in 76 innings. It's unclear if Reed will take closing duties away from Fernando Rodney. If he does, he will have obvious fantasy value.

Addison Reed traded to Red Sox, pending medical review

Addison Reed was traded from the New York Mets to the Boston Red Sox, pending a medical review, prior to Monday's 4 PM trade deadline, according to Ken Rosenthal on Twitter. The Red Sox are sending the Mets minor leaguers Jamie Callahan, Gerson Bautista, and Stephen Nogosek in return.

Fantasy Impact

Reed has been excellent as a fill-in closer for the Mets while Jeurys Familia has been sidelined, but he will slide into a setup role for the Red Sox in front of closer Craig Kimbrel. This obviously hurts his value in leagues that do not award points for holds but increases his value in leagues that do. Reed has 19 saves to go with a 2.57 ERA and a 8.82 K/9 and should be an excellent upgrade for a Boston bullpen that desperately needed one.

Addison Reed with another shaky save against Padres

Addison Reed picked up his 18th save of the season on Tuesday, preserving the Mets' 6-5 win over the Padres. Although he notched the save, Reed was touched up for a run and two hits in his one inning of work, marking the second game in a row that the Padres got to Reed and made things interesting.

Fantasy Impact

Although Reed has been shaky over his last two outings, he has put together a fine season as Jeurys Familia's replacement as Mets' closer. Reed now has 18 saves on the season to go with a 2.63 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. His name has frequently come up in trade rumors and it is quite possible the Mets will deal him before the July 31 deadline, calling into question his fantasy value should he get moved to a team with an established closer (a likely possibility unless he is dealt to Washington).

Addison Reed picks up his 17th save in gut-wrenching fashion

Addison Reed closed out the Mets' 5-3 win over the Padres on Monday night, but not before giving the Mets and their fans a huge scare in the process. Called on to preserve a 5-2 lead in the ninth inning, Reed entered the game and promptly allowed a lead-off home run to Hunter Renfroe. After allowing two of the next three batters to reach base, Jabari Blash hit what appeared to be a three-run walk-off home run to win the game for the Padres. The ball, however, sailed barely foul - a call which was upheld on video review. Reed rallied to strike out Blash and subsequently retired Matt Szczur for the final out of the game.

Fantasy Impact

Reed has been quite effective as the fill-in closer for Jeurys Familia this season. He now has 17 saves on the season to go with a 2.49 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and 48 Ks in 47 IP. While he has been a valuable fantasy asset in leagues that reward saves, his usefulness may be coming to an end if he is dealt by the Mets to a contending team that already has an established closer. All signs point to Reed being dealt before the July 31 trade deadline, so owners should be ready to obtain saves from another source if Reed returns to a set-up role. He would, however, retain his fantasy value in those leagues that reward holds. Stay tuned.

Addison Reed locks down 16th save

Addison Reed picked up his 16th save after striking out two across 1 1/3 innings to close out the Mets' 7-3 win over Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Reed came into the game with a two-out rally brewing but punched Luke Voit out to avert crisis, coming back out in the ninth to secure the four-out save. He's been a solid closer for the Mets, accumulating 16 saves with a 2.40 ERA with 47 strikeouts in 45 innings.
