Reed and the Mets agreed to terms on a one-year, $5.3 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports. Reed came over from Arizona in August and appeared in 17 games for the Mets, posting a healthy 1.17 ERA across 15.1 innings. He figures to return in a similar role as one of the Mets' better back-end relievers.
The Mets tendered contracts to all eight of their arbitration-eligible players, including Reed, before Thursday's deadline, ESPN New York reports. Reed, who made $4.875 million in 2015, is projected to make around $5.8 million in 2016. He struggled entering innings with runners-on-base but was excellent when starting an inning. As of the beginning of December, he projects to set up Jeurys Familia.
The Mets made another move to shore up their bullpen, officially announcing Sunday they have traded for Diamondbacks reliever Addison Reed in exchange for a pair of minor leaguers. Reed has spent time between the Diamondbacks and Triple-A this season, but the former closer has pitched better since being recalled on July 29. In 38 appearances, Reed is 2-2 with a 4.20 ERA and three saves, one season removed from a year in which he tallied 32 saves. The Mets sent right-handed pitchers Miller Diaz and Matt Koch to Arizona.
The Mets have added reliever Addison Reed in a trade from Arizona, pending a physical, per MLB.com. Reed owns a 4.20 ERA on the year, but has performed better recently. He has allowed just two runs in his last 14 2/3 innings and has pitched scoreless ball in 11 of his last 12 appearances.
Diamondbacks reliever Addison Reed was recalled from Triple-A Reno following Tuesday's game. Reed struggled this year with Arizona, as he lost his closer's job prior to being sent down to the minors on June 22. In 25 relief appearances with the D-Backs in 2015, Reed owns an unsightly 5.92 ERA. He's been better with the Reno Aces however, as he has a 1.74 in 11 games at Triple-A. He will take the roster spot of Randall Delgado, who was placed on the disabled list on Tuesday.
